Ever heard of Craft Hope? They are a wonderful group that collects handmade items for different charities, organization, and other areas where hope is needed. And everything is handmade by crafty people like us. The current project is collection handmade bracelets for orphans is Russia. Did you know there are over 143 million orphans in the world? And so many of them are homeless and hungry. Wouldn't it be such a wonderful gift for a young orphan girl, scared and feeling alone, to recieve a beauitful bracelet handmade by you?

I originally saw this post from Jess over at Craftiness is Not Optional and I knew I had to participate. She and her crafting buddies used V and Co.'s tutorial for a finger weave bracelet. I liked the look, but I really don't have that much knit lying around. So I improvised and came up with...
- Ribbon/yarn/strips of t shirt/anything that can be braided
- Safety pin
- Ribbon ends, two per bracelet (can be found in the jewelry findings sections of any craft store)
- Jewelry closure (not pictured)
So what do you think? Will you create with me? The deadline isn't until June 15th, so there is still plenty of time to get your bracelets in! Click here for more information.
UPDATE: Here are a few more I've made! I'm getting really close to my goal of 50!
