The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families. A sponsoring company or corporation places a Christmas tree in a secure, high-pedestrian traffic area or lobby. The tree is decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child who will receive the gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
The company I work for - the National Group - is participating in this program and I picked a 2 year old girl to buy for. Baby dolls and accessories were her wish list. I made a carrying basket with a matching mattress, pillow and quilt, and also a little blanket wrap with some scrap fleece. What fun I had making these items for this little girl. The basket is a variation of the Pink Penguin's Fabric Basket tutorial, and the quilt and pillow are variations of crazymomquilts doll bedding tutorial.
I purchased a couple outfits, socks, hat and gloves for her, and of course baby dolls!
I hope she has a Very Merry Christmas!
