February Project Announcement!

Ok sewing friends, here we go! Our February sewing project is Pillowcase Dresses! We will be sending the ones we make this month to two different places...

Some will accompany some dear friends of ours to Ghana. They will deliver them to little girls at their son's orphanage when they go to pick him up. To learn more about the service to these precious children or how you can reach out to them yourself, visit Feeding The Orphans.

Others will be sent to Cambodia as gifts for girls served by Children In Families.

Both of the above organizations are doing amazing work to care for children and we are proud to know the amazing people behind the work! If you would like to join me in sending your dresses to either of the above organizations, feel free to follow the links provided. 

Another option that is linked in the sidebar is Dress A Girl Around the World. Dress A Girl challenges you to "imagine a world where every little girl owned at least one dress". Their website provides a free pattern and video tutorial for making Pillowcase Dresses. You can send the dresses you make to them, address on their website, and they will distribute them to various places. They also have some pretty neat ideas of how you can help too, so check them out!

Or, perhaps you know a little girl in your neighborhood, at your church or your child's school whose life would be touched by a handmade dress. This is a simple dress that wears beautifully and can be paired with tights and a turtleneck for the cold months. Wherever you choose to send them, we hope you enjoy making them and would love to have you share your experience and/or photos with us!

Happy sewing and happy touching the lives of others while having yours touched as well!
