Hey gals, today I wanted to let you know about a wonderful lady named Magaret Andrade. She has been working with a local school sewing group and friends of hers, to make and donate dresses to send to girls all over the world....who have almost no clothing at all.
Can you imagine? Sadie could not wrap her mind around it when I told her I was making them for little girl who had no dresses. She was happy to let them go once I explained how excited they would be to see their new dresses. Part of me was imagining those cute grins...and hoping these would go to a pair of sisters. :)
Margaret has a simple goal of donating 50 dresses (and she's paying for the international shipping to get them sent off!)...and she needs some help to meet that goal. If you'd like to get involved, you can contact her at:
Pillowcase dresses are so ridiculously easy to make, these took me about 2 hours-and it was a great Sunday activity-although service feels good any day of the week! I know I have lots more fabric that could stand to be used for a good cause. ;)
p.s. the fabric is Joel Dewberry's Blockprint in Fuschia and Amber, from Lily Bella Fabrics.
p.p.s. I didn't use a specific tutorial for these dresses-just do a search for pillowcase dress tutorial and you should be able to find a plethora of them! (that's the reason I didn't make a tute, lol!)
