Stumbled across this so I thought I'd pass it along. Knit, crochet or sew a version of yourself and send it over to London by June 26. You can read more about it at these links:

Things like this are always so much fun. I know the Children's Museum in Houston has done this a couple of times and used them for fund raisers.

Cool
I checked with the USPS on-line for delivery cost and times.

I'd have to finish and post my self-stitchery by June 14 to get there in time. But, I wonder if there is a limit to whom they expect to receive entries from. I'm guessing this was a local campaign.



Rules say it must be three dimensional. So much for mailing a "Flat Jack" to London in an express envelope. I even have a sketch for my own design (including a mini self-stitchery for the recursive self-stitchery).

Wow, you're actually going to do it! I'm afraid if I tried, mine would end up looking more like FrankenSkein than anything
else.
