Steggies on the Move

These two Steggies are on their way to Texas! When I posted the pattern here, I posted a link to it on a bulletin board community where I like to hang out. I made the offer to make Steggies for non-crocheters in exchange for a $10 donation to Jennie's fund. Pretty much as soon as I hit the submit button, a lovely friend asked if she could "order" two, one green and one pink. I was happy to oblige her and thank her for her generous contribution.

Once I get these guys mailed off, there will be Steggies in 3 different states! Since I am such a smalltime blogger, I am quite impressed with this feat :-) I also had another blogger, one with actual published patterns, mkcarroll put a link to my pattern up on her site! Thanks mk!

Steggie! Now with downloadable PDF!

Thanks to my very sweet friend Lucia I can now offer you the pattern for Steggie :-) Look to your right and scroll down to just below my blogroll and there is a button there. If you click on it you can download and print a free PDF copy of Steggie so you can make your very own loveable baby stegosaurus. If you have any questions about the pattern, please email me and I will try to answer them for you!

I would like to ask a huge favor of all of you who are interested in downloading the pattern. I am offering the pattern free of charge. However, if you download it, please consider making a small donation to this fund. Even if you can only spare a dollar, every dollar helps and I would be most grateful for your generous help.

My friend Jennie was born with cystic fibrosis and she is currently on a waiting list for a double lung transplant. Over the course of her life she will incur a large number of expenses for the surgery itself, special medications, and special treatment she must receive to make sure that the lung transplant is not rejected. Her family has set up this fund through COTA, the Children's Organ Transplant Association, to raise money to help offset these costs.

Donating is safe and simple. The site is secure and all donations are tax deductible. You can donate online with just a few clicks. COTA keeps none of your donation for their administrative costs--ALL funds donated go to Jennie's care. When you make your Steggie, you can know that you have helped give someone very grateful a second chance at life.


NOTE!: If you navigated to this page from another website through a direct link, you will need to visit my main page in order to access the Steggie button. Simply click on the word "Purrls" in the pink bar and look in the right hand column under the blogroll.
