Give a Little Love

A request went up on Ravelry for some small comfort gifts to be given to ladies who are undergoing chemotherapy at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. I couldn't say no. I made some small jewelry items and a couple soap savers.....this is one of them....



This pattern is called the Talula Turtle Soap Cover by Maggie Weldon. Unfortunately I cant give a link to the pattern. For some strange reason, the day after I printed out the pattern and linked to it on Ravelry (which was only yesterday), it mysteriously disappeared. Perhaps the designer will share it again one day. If so, I will amend this post and provide the link. It's made from #10 crochet cotton and a #6 (1.75 mm) hook. The beads on the ties were my own idea. When I was younger, this would have been a much easier pattern but my eyes and hands aren't what they used to be. Still, it was fun to make and I like the way he came out.

If you are interested in making a small gift or gifts for some courageous ladies, check out the Annie's Gifts for Chemo group on Ravelry.
