What We Need

What We Need:

Completed Character and Superhero Beanies:

We need completed Character and Superhero beanies of all sorts. Try one of our new patterns for the Incredibles, Paw Patrol or PJ Masks Catboy! All character patterns can be found here.

Accessories:

We need superhero and character emblems. You don’t need to make the completed beanie. If you crochet and like quick projects, make us any of the emblems, eyes, or ears for any of our character beanies! 

Beanies:

The Southeast Region needs Beanies. Specifically we need black beanies for Jasmine, Tiana, Moana and Wonder Woman. We need Lion Brand Heartland Yosemite beanies for Anna. We also need Red Heart Soft Wine or Caron Simply Soft beanies in Autumn Red for Jack Sparrow, and Red Heart Soft Really Red, Yarn Bee Soft Secret Red or Caron Simply Soft Harvest Red for Ariel. For Belle, we also need buns, ringlets as found in the pattern here as well as 2″ red crochet roses.

Flowers:

We currently need dozens of large 4″ – 6″ yellow or purple flowers for Rapunzel. We also need 100’s of 1″ – 1.5″ flowers in yellows, pinks, purples, and blue violet shades to add to Rapunzel’s long braid. All flowers should have at least two layers and a gem/rhinestone in a complementary color in the center.

Yarn, Ribbon, and Beads – Oh My!

We need supplies – yarn and ribbon in particular, to construct wigs at our workshops and to create superhero beanies. We use Caron Simply Soft, Caron Simply Soft Party, Red Heart Soft, Red Heart Soft Metallic, Yarn Bee Soft Secret yarn as well as Lion Brand Hometown USA in Oakland Black and Billings Chocolate and Lion Brand Heartland in Yosemite. View the full yarn list here.

Ribbon is used throughout the Rapunzel braid, and is used to tie bows onto a lot of our other princesses.  We need 1/4″ – 1/2″ non-wired ribbon in pink, hot pink, purple, lavender, teal, yellow, blue, silver and mint green. We need 5/8″ – 3/4″ ribbon in teal, or blue-green for Jasmine.  

A great way to help is to host a yarn drive or ribbon drive.  If you have any questions, please email me at southeast@themagicyarnproject.com.

Captain Jack Sparrow has a head full of dreadlocks. For his wig, he has decorations in the form of beads in his dreadlocks. For this we need skull beads, wooden, metal and turquoise looking beads, gold or bronze coin charms or other nautical charms and beads such as turtles, compasses, helm/steering wheels and anchors.

Decorated Envelopes:

We currently need decorated envelopes for Elsa.

Wish Lists:

Here is a wish list for The Southeast Region on Amazon.com.  The South Florida Chapter has also created a wish list through Wal-Mart for supplies our chapter needs.  You will find everything from yarn and ribbon to shipping supply needs.  These items can be shipped to the chapter PO Box, or if you prefer to ship to store to avoid shipping costs with Wal-Mart, send an email to Southeast@themagicyarnproject.com to arrange the store pick-up. Ship to store options are also available with Michael’s, JoAnn’s, and Dollar Tree, so feel free to contact our chapter by email or Facebook messenger with any questions.

Workshops and Events

Crystal River, FL

Sunday, September 15, 2019 at 11am – Advent Hope 154 Three Sisters Springs Trail, Crystal River, 34429

Magic Makers in the Crystal River area, come on out and learn to make The Magic Yarn Project Belle wig for a brave little cancer fighter. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month and this workshop will serve as a fundraiser for the Southeast Region. Our workshops are typically free with a donation of supplies that are needed, however for this workshop, we are requesting a $25 donation per participant to help cover the cost of the wigs. Participants will be partnered in groups of two ($50 is the total cost of a wig from supplies to shipping) and will be shown how to complete the Belle style wig. Once you can make Belle, you also have the knowledge required for making Aurora and Captain Marvel wigs. No experience necessary. All supplies will be included. Arrive with your $25 donation or make a donation on our website www.themagicyarnproject.com/southeast and bring your receipt and prepare for a fun filled two hours to create a beautiful handmade Belle wig to brighten the day of an amazing child and their family! Reserve your space on Eventbrite today!

Region Leader Taunya Shelton

Hello! My name is Taunya Shelton and I am a stay at home mother of three little boys ages 4, 3, and 1 year old. As such, I am surrounded with superheroes, my favorites being Spider-Man and Batman. As far as a favorite Princess, my favorite of the moment is Moana.  I love that Moana is as fierce and brave as she is beautiful… and she has a pet pig! I am looking forward working with those of you in our region to be able to create and construct these beautiful, sparkly wigs and heroic beanies to donate to these brave cancer fighters!
