I entered an on line swap Aunt Pitty Pat Raggedy Annie Doll Swap. I was partnered with the host of the swap, and I think she is Divine!
I will post a picture of what I made and sent to her as soon as she receives it. I had great fun.

I am very happy that the things I had for sale raised about $100 I do not know the total raised but I think we did very well.

I found these retractable reel pulls in Savers the other day and they were 5 for $2. and I was estatic! I thought they would be a great thing to turn into scissor keepers. They had seven packets so I bought them all, so now I have 35 of these beauties to tun into gifts.

What you will need is 3 circles covered with fabric with wadding and fabric. One of the circles has a hole in it to accommodate the button on the retractable tape measure so that the button is not restricted and can still be felt. this will be sewn onto the bottom of the measure. The other two circles will be sewn together ladder stitch style to accommodate the pins.
The band around the centre is just a strip of fabric glued onto cardboard the same width as the measure leaving a gap for the tape to move freely.
Ladder stitch the double section to the top where the measure does not have the button to the middle band and the single circle with the hole on the bottom where the measure has the button.
Add a few pins to show how to use it and you are done.
Now that we are in July I am getting into Christmas mode and will be making the Charity toys too. I am thinking teddy bears and dolls this year.
