Crochet for a Good Cause

(Crochet * Stash-buster)


For the last two years, I have been contributing to a charity organization called “Pishamitas con Amor” (in English, “Little Pijamas with Love”).
Desde hace dos años, he estado contribuyendo con una organización caritativa llamada “Pishamitas con Amor”.

They collect clothing for babies, blankets, diapers, etc. in order to help mothers who have just given birth in the public hospital (@ Guatemala City). 
Ellos recolectan ropita de bebé, mantas, pañales, etc. para ayudar a madres necesitadas que han dado a luz en el hospital público (@ Ciudad de Guatemala). 



To contribute to that good cause, I have been crocheting baby sweaters…
Para contribuir a esa buena causa, he estado tejiendo suéteres para bebé…

...and hats for newborns and premature babies.
…y gorritas para recién nacidos y bebés prematuros.

This year I will also be making several blankets, as part of the Challenge “Crochet Mood Blanket2014”.  I have almost finished the first one, and I will share it soon.
Este año también estaré tejiendo mantas pequeñas, como parte del Reto “Crochet MoodBlanket 2014”.  Ya casi terminé la primera, y pronto la mostraré.

My mom and aunt are also crocheting for this good cause… My mom made this granny-stripes blanket in blue tones, and my aunt made the following colorful Ripple blanket with a matching hat, and several hats as well.
Mi mamá y mi tía también están tejiendo para esta buena causa…mi mamé tejió esta manta de líneas azules, y mi tía hizo la siguiente manta de ondas coloridas, además de muchas gorras.

  13. The tiny hats & sweaters are all so sweet (love the yellow & grey!). How nice it must be for the new mothers to receive such beautiful things for their little babies. You are so thoughtful to contribute your crocheted goodness to others. The blankets of your mother's and aunts are beautiful ... love the bright stripes with that wild hat! Wendy x

  17. You're wonderful, great cause, and truthfully, the handmade things are so much more meaningful than something store bought. I have been wanting to do something similar for my local hospital, so thanks for the inspiration. I've also been wanting to start a blog dedicated to projects like this one so people can choose from a wide variety of causes. I'll let you know if it happens, namely the blog, and maybe you could help and do research for the spanish speaking ones. thanks for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!
