Today is Christmas Jumper Day!
I was a little late to the party, and after a fruitless search of the local charity shops, I decided to make my own. I had grand plans of appliquéing a Rudolph or a snowman or a Christmas tree onto my jumper, but then had an “A-HA” moment that made things much quicker and easier!
I got hold of 1 plain jumper, and 1 Santa hat, both from the charity shop
I butchered the Santa hat by cutting it in half (sorry Santa) and then pinned it to my jumper
And then hand-sewed, yes people, I hand-sewed, it to the jumper. In hindsight, I should have bondawebbed it first, but I only thought of this halfway through and then was loathe to unpick my laborious hand sewing.
It’s not too late to take part, or to donate even if you aren’t taking part.
Simply text WOOLLY to 70050 to donate £1.
£1 is really not much, but it can make the difference between life and death for some of the children that Save the Children support.
Your money could pay for nine sachets of oral rehydration treatment for children suffering from deadly diarrhoea.
So go on, don a Christmas jumper and save a life 🙂
