COZIES FOR PETS & HAPPY HANDS CHALLENGE

Tundra Women’s Coalition - Bethel, Alaska

*****CHALLENGE COMPLETED*****

The last time we “visited” the Tundra shelter, we sent them supplies for the residents who knew how to crochet or knit or wanted to learn.  We also sent them pet cozies/pads for their on-site pet shelter for residents’ pets. They loved them and would love to have them again this time. 

Here is what we would like to have pledged:

15 skeins of yarn (worsted weight, acrylic) - DONE
15 pr. of children's scissors - DONE
10 pr. knitting needles (sizes 8 to 10, shorter length) - DONE
15 crochet hooks (sizes G, H, I, or J) - DONE
15 large eye yarn needles (plastic or metal) - DONE

 4 - 20”x20” blankets/pads - DONE
 4 - 24”x24” blankets/pads - DONE
 4 - 24”x30” or 30”x30” blankets/pads - DONE

Pet blankets/pads may be crocheted, knitted, or sewn. If crochet or knit, blanket yarn or several strands of worsted weight held together makes a nice thick pad. If sewn, flannel, corduroy, fleece or denim are good materials - with a layer of batting in between - with a line or two of stitching through the middle to hold batting in place. Even an old clean blanket can be cut up and used for batting. ALL ITEMS MUST BE WASHABLE!

MAILING DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 18, 2017
