Patterns

Below are patterns of items needed at Midwest Mission.


The wonderful thing about these sewing projects, is that it gives missionaries opportunities to use their gifts & talents of sewing, knitting & crocheting off site, for children in need. 


In choosing fabric for any of these patterns, please do NOT use fabric that has:

  • Patriotic Images
  • Camouflage
  • Advertising
  • Hand Prints
  • Foot Prints
  • Paw Prints

Midwest Mission ask this due to the majority of these items being sent to developing countries and we need to be respectful of their customs and beliefs. 


Please use new and unwashed fabric.
