Recently, I received an email from Shana asking if we could use a fabric donation to make dresses for Dress A Girl Around the World. Shana's mom, Gail, was an avid quilter and crafter and dressmaker. I said yes!! Today Scott (Shana's husband) came by with lots of fabric…
It is sew beautiful!!
And her is the first dress I made with Gail's Fabric
I believe that will will be able to fund this well soon!! So I am giving you a challenge. I would like to send or perhaps take… lovely PINK dresses to this well dedication!! Now is the time to start. Sew a PINK Dress for a little Girl in need in Hiriga… the only requirement is that it be PINK… it can have other colors with the PINK but it should be mainly PINK. There will be judges that will choose the PRINCESS of PINK DRESSES. That designer will receive a gift bag with lots of goodies… lace, trims, buttons, rick rack and elastic to help them make more dresses.
Here is a picture of the goodies box that the winner at our garden party received
Sorry the winner here will not receive a sewing basket but they will receive lots of wonderful goodies!!
Now for the details…
Make as many PINK dresses as you would like.
Please send a $5.00 donation with each dress and if it is a check make it out to Water 4 Kids International and also include another $1 cash to help cover the cost of the prize.
I feel very blessed to have been asked to be the director of Dress A Girl Around the World. I pray that I can help our project grow and reach even more girls… giving them love and dignity! When you put a dress on a little girl and look into her eyes and see the joy it is priceless!! The last year has been amazing… traveling to Appalachia and Uganda delivering dresses and now helping to raise funds for the Hiriga well. I never thought that I would travel by myself to join a team in Uganda. You see I am really a kind of timid person inside… I try not to show that to too many people but it is true. I have always seen the teams in Uganda and I have always wanted to go but I never believed that I actually would go. Trying to describe how it happened... that I actually went is hard… I said I wanted to go and I started saying I was going to go but it wasn't me making it happen… I saw it happening… funds being raised, airplane tickets being purchased, dresses being sewn… but it wasn't me… it was God doing it as I watched. And then yes I did go to Uganda. Dress A Girl Around the World has indeed blessed my life. As I have sewn these dresses I have received so so much. Thank you ladies and gentlemen of Dress A Girl Around the World. I will try and be a great director. Let's continue to help little ones in need in a BIG way!! By the way Rachel you are the best!!!!
Recently we have had a call to several locations that have very cold winter temperatures. Because of the need I have started sewing t-shirt dresses for cold climates. I use the normal instructions for t-shirt dresses http://sewdelightful.blogspot.com/search/label/t-shirt%20dresses I use long sleeved t-hirts and flannel or corduroy for the skirts to make these dresses warmer. These dresses have gone to South Dakota, Washington, Appalachia, and Alaska.
Here is one of the dresses…
And here is one of the little ones that has received a dress…
