Ship Support-cool ties

by Nanc filed under sewing on March 2, 2003 10:56 AM

Make love, not war! But if war happens to be going on, support our troops until they come home.

One of my first charity projects, I started sewing 'cool ties' for our troops overseas in the war. These cotton ties are filled with a small amount of water-absorbing crystals that turn to gel and stay cool for a really long time. With the temps rising to 120 in the middle east, the troops could use all of the relief they can get.

The ties are very simple to make. I encourage anyone who wants to help out with this one to do so, no matter your political beliefs.
