One of the places that our dresses go is Operation Christmas Child boxes.  These boxes are the size of a shoe box and people pack them with lots of items from school supples to stuffed animals and of course dresses.  I have been doing some thrift shopping and found some wonderful items for the OCC boxes...

I spent about $4 for all of these items.  I especially love the horse coloring kits!!

T-Shirt Dresses

I love the simplicity of making the t-shirt dresses and also how cute they turn out.  Here are four I recently made.  I purchases the t-shirts off of the clearance racks and was able to use up all of the flowered material and I love gingham for ruffles...

Here is a link to the t-shirt tutorial

Have fun and keep on sewing!!

Thank you Margaret, Sally, Sharon and Ute

All these wonderful ladies recently sewed dresses for the little girls that we serve.  And when I have dresses I mean a lot… almost two hundred dresses have come to my house this week.  I am constantly amazed by the creativity and generosity of the ladies that sew with us!!  I have to share the story of Margaret.  She has some health issues and loves to sew these dresses but because of her health issues Margaret had a problem… her sewing machine was upstairs and it was very hard for her to get up those stairs.  Her wonderful daughter put in a stair lift chair for Margaret and now she can easily go upstairs and sew.  And I received 100 dress this week that Margaret has finished!!  Here are just a few of the many dresses that came this week.

Thank you to all the ladies that keep sewing for these precious girls!!

Dresses to Guatemala

You just never know where you will meet someone that has a need for dresses.  I met Rachel on Facebook in a free cycle type group I belong to.  She shared that a friend, Suzy, was heading to an orphanage in Guatemala in December.  After we spoke for awhile I offered her dresses for the girls in the orphanage.  They range in age from 9 months to 14 years old.  Ladies you have shared a very special Christmas blessing with these girls!!  Yesterday Rachel picked the dresses up and they are beginning their journey to Guatemala.  Thank you sewers and thank you Rachel and Suzy for helping these precious little ones!!
