Craft Patterns

Stockings and hats and bags! Oh My!

 

Do you love to sew? Do you love to use your crafting skills to show love and support to others? Whether you are an individual or you belong to a crafting circle or quilting guild, we need your skills.

 

Stocking Pattern:
Every Christmas, we ship handmade Christmas stockings to our troops (in 2012, Operation Shoebox shipped 25,385 stockings).

Caps Pattern:
Year round, we receive heartfelt thanks for the handknit and crocheted caps that make their way into care packages; these especially make a difference in regions where temperatures drop at night.

Ditty bags Pattern:
Ditty Bags are used by members of the armed forces to carry small items – continue to be a practical gift as well.

Testimonials

My name is Brad Nelson and I received a care package from you today. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Myself along with the rest of my company is extremely grateful for your generosity. The treats that you sent were a huge boost in moral and made my day along with many others. It is such a great feeling to know that there are people like you who are willing to support our troops.
