It's My Birthday!

To celebrate my birthday I am making/collecting pillowcase dresses for the organization Hope 4 Kids Internationals' "Dress a Girl Around the World" campaign. It is a wonderful organization that donates handmade dresses to girls in need.
My goal is to send 27 dresses by April 1st. I need your help.  

If you are a non-sewer you can help me by sending me cute pillowcases that my friends and I can turn into dresses. 

If you are a sewer, you can make pillowcase dresses using any pattern but I recommend the pattern on the Dress a Girl Around the World website.This is a great easy project for a beginner. And, once you make one, you will want to make a dozen more. :)

If you want to help, you can email me at h_mcewen at hotmail dot com or you can leave a comment below.

Thank you so much. It is such a simple act that makes such a huge difference in the lives of these girls.

Girls in the Philippines
 Wouldn't it be fun to see the dress that you make on a child?
