Little Dresses For Africa

Several months ago, Kristen at We Are That Family posted a call for people to participate in a two part charity project, to benefit Little Dresses for Africa.

The first part of the project was a drive to collect pillowcases, sewing notions and shipping money. The second part of the project was that the donated supplies were mailed to a group of volunteer seamstresses, who then sewed the dresses, and mailed them off to the charity.

I was one of the volunteer seamstresses, and I'm happy to say that I mailed off 10 little dresses last week. I had fun working on them, and got to try out some of the embroidery stitches my new sewing machine does.

I hope the little girls like them.


  1. Hey! I'm coming over from Hip Homeschool Hop. Thanks for linking up with us today. Dont forget a new linkup and giveaways are posted each Tuesday. I cannot wait to get to know you/your blog better!


  2. I had wanted to do this, but knew there was no way I'd be able to.

    I'm going to do the latest Craft Hope and make pillowcases though. I've got enough fabric to do that.

  3. I was actually a little worried I wouldn't get these done in time. In typical fashion, I sort of overbooked myself for the month of July. I was so glad to get them done and mailed in time. I saw the latest Craft Hope project, but I think I'm going to sit this one out. How many pillowcases are you shooting for?

  4. What a wonderful project! I wish that I knew how to sew.

    Thank you for joining the Hip Homeschool Hop today!
