Saturday Swap #6

on July 19, 2014

This doesn’t quite count as a swap, as it is a one-way swap, but I am showing them off this week.

One of my friends signed up to do a donation for Dress a Girl Around the World. This is a charity that collects pillowcase dresses and distributes them to underprivileged girls around the world.

Now, y’all know I don’t really do clothes, but these dresses were so easy I was knocking out two in a sitting. I bought pillowcases at Goodwill and the thrift shop down the street. I used premade bias tape from Walmart. I made my pockets using charms from the scrappy charm swap. I also cut some pillowcases for pockets that I got at Goodwill that turned out to be shams.

In all I sent 8 dresses. She plans to do it again in the new year and I will be collecting pillowcases til then!

    The lace on the pockets adds so much.

    That is a great idea. I’m going to start collecting pillowcases too.

    Love that each dress is different, so even if they all go to the same community, no two girls will look exactly alike. I’ve been thinking seriously lately about doing this sort of thing too. And then I come across your blog just today!!
