Okay- it’s Blog Threads day! ?
This month’s fundraiser family is the Stottmann family, who is also in the process of adopting a child from Haiti. I met Sara via Instagram last year, and I have really enjoyed seeing her photos and messages pop up there from week to week. She writes a beauty-full blog called A Surrendered Heart, too:
She has such a sweet spirit, and I am so grateful our paths have criss-crossed while we’re both on this wild adventure!
Big Dreams, Full Heart is available on vintage red or heather gray shirts. They’re super soft (50% Polyester, 25% Cotton, 25% Rayon) and they’re made by Next Level…the same shirts we’ve used in previous sales.
They come in a (crew neck) unisex or (crew or v-neck) ladies cut shirt. The unisex shirts run very true to size (and don’t shrink when you dry them), but the ladies cut shirts run a couple of sizes small (and also don’t shrink when you dry them). For example, I’m 5′-5″ (125 lbs) and while I wear a small in the unisex t-shirt, I wear a size large in the ladies cut t-shirt. Here are the size charts for both kinds of cuts:
Ladies Cut v-neck:
HPS stands for “high point of shoulder”. It’s the measurement that goes from the highest point of your shoulder straight down to the hem at the bottom of the t-shirt. The Bust 1″ Blw Amhl measurement is the one that runs from side to side, across the bust area- 1″ down from the bottom of the arm hole if the t-shirt is laying flat. The third measurement (SLV Length Frm Shld Edge) is the outside edge of the sleeve. When I was trying to decide which size to order, I measured one of my other t-shirts that fits well to see which size would be the most comparable.
If you’re interested in ordering, you can hop over to the Blog Threads website by clicking on the banner below:
Once the sale is done (Thursday night around 10pm CST) I’ll deactivate the site so that I can tally up the order and send it off to the print shop on Friday (June 19th). It usually takes about two weeks to get them back from the print shop, so Kevin and I will start packing them up and mailing them out when we get back from visiting Sweet P at the end of this month. I’m thinking they’ll all be delivered between July 6th and July 10th, depending on what part of the world you live in.
Thanks for taking the time to read this far if you’re still here, and let me know if you have any other questions about the “threads”! 😀
