One of my favorite charity organizations is Smile Train (http://www.smiletrain.org ). This organization provides free cleft surgery to hundreds of thousands of poor children in developing countries. As they do, I believe every child deserves a beautiful smile. So I decided to design a Knit Smile Train in honor of these children and DONATE THE PROCEEDS to this wonderful organization. My Smile Train is a colorful train with a happy face on the front. It has two freight cars that can carry lots of toys (not included) for hours of fun (& learning colors) for that special someone. You are sure to see smiles in return!
Gauge is not critical for this project. Work
tight enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
