I am so excited! I have all these little balls of yarn that I hate to toss, as they can be used for something, but i don't know what. I have slowly been gathering patterns for fridge magnets and such, but tonight at craft group I found a much better thing to do with them!
A lady there collects them, and she and others make little dolls with them, about 6 inches tall. They then use these for packing material when sending dental equipment to third world countries. It serves 2 purposes - way better than those styrofoam packing peanuts, and they are something for the little kids who come to the dentist and are scared. They get a present after!
I am just so thrilled to have a great place to donate these to!
