Swag Bags

I am working on crafts for Operation Christmas Child Boxes and wanted to revisit making small bags.  It is a great way to use up scraps of fabric.  And these swag bags work for both boys and girls...

Here is a link to original tutorial

It has been a long time

It has been awhile since I have posted on the email address for contacting me has changed to  There are still lots of ladies sewing in Washington State and dresses are still going around the world.  Here is a picture of a little one in Jamaica recently receiving her dress!!

We are still making simple pillowcase style sundresses, simple A-line dresses and also t-shirt dresses for these precious little ones.

Here is a link to the simple sundress tutorial

The above simple A-line dress was made using a simple commercial pattern.

Thank you to all the Wonderful Ladies that Made this Possible!!

526 dresses and 503 accessories were picked up last week and are starting their journey to Sierra Leone!!  Lynn from Greatest Goal Ministries picked them up for us.  So many ladies made these dresses and delivered or mailed them to me in the last few weeks.  Thank you sew much for making this happen!!!

This is what 526 dresses looks like...

Thank you to my hubby Jim for carting them all out to the car!!

And yes we were able to fill the car completely for these little ones.

It does take awhile for this many dresses to travel to the other side of the world but as soon as we have pictures I will let you know!!

Thank you Lynn!!!

Thank you to each lady that sewed these dresses!!

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!!
