Rock the Wear Wednesday – handmade by jenn michelle

Something a little different this Wednesday! “here is a heart was founded as a creative collaboration between musician jenny owen youngs and crafter/cancer survivor jenn michelle pedini, designed to raise awareness and donations for charitable organizations near and dear to their own hearts. kinda like an internet bake sale… but with handmade crafts instead of brownies.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of these hearts is donated to stand up to cancer. visit our other etsy shop at http://hereisaheart.etsy.com.”

HERE IS A HEART handmade plush – all proceeds benefit Stand UpTo Cancer charity donate SU2C

 Visit Jenn’s shop on Etsy!

handmade by jenn michelle, each plush hearts is crafted from a super soft polyester fleece remnant. hand-dyed vintage button eyes are added and a quirky little mouth is lovingly stitched up. then they’re plumped full of a blend of recycled polyfil, workroom fabric scraps and l-o-v-e. finally, each grill mark is individually hand-inked.

each heart is unique and will vary slightly in size and expression. all are wicked cute, fight cancer and measure between 4-6″ x 4-6″ (approximately). makes an awesome valentine, sorry-you-have-cancer gift, anniversary gift, break up gift, phone or tablet screen wipe (just mind the eyes). listen, what more can you possibly want from a tiny little heart?

all hearts ship in 100% post-consumer packaging materials, except for the tape and labels.

here is a heart was founded as a creative collaboration between musician jenny owen youngs and crafter/cancer survivor jenn michelle pedini, designed to raise awareness and donations for charitable organizations near and dear to their own hearts. kinda like an internet bake sale… but with handmade crafts instead of brownies.

the project was inspired by the song from which it takes its name – “here is a heart,” the fourth track on jenny owen young’s sophomore album, transmitter failure. jenn michelle pedini handcrafts each heart from remnants or upcycled fabric, vintage and hand-dyed buttons and recycled stuffing.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of these hearts is donated to stand up to cancer. visit our other etsy shop at http://hereisaheart.etsy.com.

ROCK THE WEAR WEDNESDAY is a feature we will do each Wednesday highlighting something to wear, gift or decorate with by a vendor who supports the cause. We will feature various companies, shopkeepers, stay at home moms and more that support the research for cancer! Vendors must support the cause by donating at least a 10% portion of their profits from sales to a reputable cancer organization.
