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

I would like to thank you for the care packages that you sent to us. It really does mean a lot to my troops and myself when we know there are people who do care for us. We greatly appreciate your efforts in making us feel more at home away from our families. I want to let you know that your hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed. Thank you again.
