To yank myself out of my funk, I started making some pillowcase dresses for children in an orphanage in Haiti. I had seen this post on Cat's blog, looked up directions on the internet and started pulling out old pillowcases, fabric and trims. Now I was inspired and cutting, pinning and sewing ensued!! Here are the first two dresses I completed.
I have a few more to finish and they are fairly easy to make! The thought of a Haitian child wearing one of these little frocks gives me hope. It's a tiny contribution to an enormous need, but it feels good to do something - anything - to help!
If you feel like making some cute little dresses (or diapers, aprons or totes) to help out, go over to Cat's blog and read her Feb.18 post. And while you're there, enjoy her brilliant quilts with words, phrases and sunshine written all over them!
