Sewing Little Dresses

One of our bloggy buddies posted a while ago about
her friends that were sewing little dresses for some missionaries to
take to Haiti.

The pattern is posted on "littledressesforafrica".
I volunteered to make 5 (or so).
At that time I hadn't made one so I didn't know if I'd want to make more than that.
So, I've been working on them in the evening and they are fun to make!!
They are made from pillowcases and sew up easy and fast.
I'll show you the rest soon!


  1. what a nice idea - did you get your pretty pillowcases at your thrift store?

  2. I just volunteered to knit some scarves for a blog friend whose church is making them to send with their church members on a mission trip. Your pillowcase dresses look adorable! Isn't it rewarding to make those dresses and think of the children who will wear them? I have a friend who came thrifting to your area (probably to your shop) this week. Small world, isn't it? Have a great weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

  3. Donna, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy wearing this are a wonderful lady my friend.....:-) Hugs

  4. They look really nice!! So sweet of you to dontate them : )

  5. Those are really cute! I love them. Your hands have been busy!

  6. Hi Donna,
    Your little dresses are so pretty. It's wonderful, too that you are so giving of your time and talent.
    I know what a busy lady you are, so God Bless your sweet heart!


  7. What a kind and wonderful thing you are
    doing, Donna. The dresses are simply
    God bless,

  8. Those are adorable! I pray that whoever receives them will 'feel' the love that was put into them and that their hearts will be drawn to the One you serve.
    Blessings & Hugs,

  9. Thanks for all your sweet comments.
    I don't deserve any of them. I love to sew and this is more fun for me than I can tell you.
    It gives me a chance to serve the Lord and that is a blessing too.
    But, I do enjoy your comments.
    smile, Donna

  10. You would never know these were once pillow cases. They are very lovely, Donna!
