Little Lizard King has chosen to sponsor the organization Stand for the Silent (http://www.standforthesilent.org/) for a special project we are doing.
The "Free To Be Me" project is all about teaching the girls in our lives to love who they are and be happy with themselves. It's also about teaching them to love and appreciate everyone else for who they are. Although, it is fun to design beautiful handmade clothing for our children, grandchildren, friends and customers to wear, it is more important to make sure they feel beautiful and confident from the inside out. If we can instill this in the girls in our lives, spread kindness and acceptance and additionally raise money for the Stand for the Silent organization, then this project will have been a success
Stand for the Silent is an anti-bullying organization doing just this and is saving lives every day!
On Thursday July 27th, 2017 we will be releasing two patterns: The Free To Be Me Tee and Harem Pants.
A semi-fitted knit top with a rainbow hem in the front and back. It features both short and long sleeves.
The pants are loose fitting harem pant with optional pockets and fully elasticized waist and ankles.
As you in from our fabulous pattern testers photos, you will notice that most of the models have a word on their shirt. We created 9 different cut files of words that describe girls. The girls were all asked to identify what word represents them best and to be proud of that and celebrate it by wearing it on their shirt. The cut files (fearless, brilliant, compassionate, silly, free spirited, strong, adventurous, dreamer and creative) will also be available on the website
For the next month we will donate 50 percent of all shirt, pants and cut file sales to Stand for the Silent.
In addition, we have a free headband pattern on the website to thank you for participating.
Our hope is that over the next few weeks, we will see you posting pictures of the girls in your life celebrating who they are. Take a moment to talk to them about what really beauty is.
Lastly, mothers, it wouldn’t hurt for you all to identify with a word as well and you share your strengths with the girls in your life. In fact share it with the boys in your life as well and help them to identify with a word that describes boys.
Thank you for helping us to make this project a huge success.
