OCC boxes

Here are the dresses we have so far for the Operation Christmas Child boxes.  We need 225 total in sizes medium, Large and Extra Large.  You have until about October 10 to sew and then if you could get them to Marlene and Evy by October 10th or to me by October 14th.  How exciting to have Sew Delightful's first big request for dresses filled.  Thank you sew much for all of your hard work and dedication.  I will be traveling for the next few weeks so response time will be slow.

Keep stitching in His name ladies!!

Over 1/2 Way There and a New Dress

Good Morning ladies.  I am happy to tell you that we have 116 of the 225 dresses requested to go into the Operation Christmas Child boxes!!  How exciting is that!!  We have until the middle of October to make the other 109 dresses.  I know we can do it.  We need size medium, large and extra large for this request.  Thank you to Linda, Sally, Loretta, Marlene and Evy for already giving dresses for this request!!  You are the BEST!!

Also, here is a sneak peak at the A-Line dress that we will be sewing for the Extra Large Dresses… the pattern is almost ready to share.  It comes with ties so that it will fit many different girls…

Bargain Shopping

I have been working on items for Operation Christmas Child boxes.  Recently I stopped at Value Village and I always have to look and see if they have any new fabric.  I found a pretty piece of fabric for making scarves and with my senior discount it was only $3.20.  I cut the length of the scarves lengthwise on the fabric and was able to make 12 scarves for my $3.20.  Once cut I just put a rolled hem around them and they were done!!

I do sew love a bargain...

T-shirts Versatility!!

I love making t-shirt dresses and here is a link to a tutorial on that subject

In the tutorial it talks about making high-waisted, low-waisted and natural waisted dresses.  I realized I had just made two of those with the same t-shirt so thought I would show you the different looks.  Have a wonderful day all!!

I am excited to announce that a large group of sewers within Washington State are joining together to sew for children in need.  As we start, we are sewing dresses, shorts and skirts with t-shirts for these precious little ones!

We will be making pillowcase style dresses: emphasizing sizes Baby, Extra Small, Small and Medium. If you would like our sizing charts and armhole templates please send an email to  Here is an example of the pillowcase style dress…

We will also be doing t-shirt style dresses

Here is a link to the t-shirt tutorial

Another option will be skirts (both cotton knit and cotton woven fabric) and tops and we will have sizing and tutorials up soon but here is the idea…
