A Christmas Doll Pincushion & Thimble Purse

xmas-doll-thimble-purse

I decided to stitch a Christmas tuned pincushion doll and thimble purse as a special token of love for kids bearing serious diseases.
I was deeply touched to know that Make a Wish International is taking care of making special wishes coming true for these kids in need, with the strong convincement that wishes, dreams and projects can boost their immune defences and their psychological strength to fight diseases.

A special donation to Make a Wish International will be given out of the sales of this design, for the true happiness of these unfortunate kids.
