A couple of weeks back one of my favourite brands The White Stuff got in touch about a charity campaign they are running called 'Are You Thready'. As a big fan of the vibrant colours and playful patterns they use I knew it would be a project that would be really fun to get involved in.
Essentially all you need to do is pop into your local branch and pick up on of their material squares to customise. Once returned each square will be added to others to create a patchwork cushion or quilt and also £5 will be donated to a local charity for every square completed, (the finished patchwork items will also be donated to charity).
Each local branch will then judge the customised pieces and award a £50 voucher to the best square and the winner will also be entered to win the grand prize, a holiday for two to Italy! You can see more info here.
I love this idea of local communities getting together and creating. You can also attend the judging at your local shop and chat crafting over tea and cake, who knows you might make a friend!
You have until the 10th of March to enter and you can post pictures of your square on social media with the hashtag #AreYouThready. It's a great idea to take a look at what others have done for inspiration too!
I love this bird print square I received and I think I will give sewing in some colour to the pattern to make it stand out that bit more.
If you're wondering then yes that it a giant button cookie and yes Wilf laid claim to it before I even had a chance ;)
