Crafting For a Cause: Pillow Case Dresses.

My sweet Friend Amy over at One Artsy Mama, is helping a friend Mallory collect Pillow Case dresses for girls in need over in Uganda.  Mallory is a remarkable young lady who started Project Yesu, you can read more about it HERE!

 

Mallory is planning a trip for Uganda in June, and needs Pillow Case Dresses for the many girls in need in Uganda. 

Want to HELP?

Making a pillow dress is easy, and a great beginner project.  You can find a simple tutorial at Sew Like My Mom.
 
 
Never fear, you can also make a no-sew pillowcase dress...believe it or not, it's simple and just as nice! Here's a tutorial from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.
 
Or do you remember this guest post from Simple Simon and Co, you can make a pillowcase dress out of an actual pillowcase in just 15 minutes!  This one was  made one from a beautiful vintage pillowcase.
 
 


So what do you think?  Let's all chip in and make a pillowcase dress!  They will take any size, any color, whatever you can do willbe great.  So make it a family project,  a church project, or a blog project!  Let's help these girls out!

The deadline is May 31st!
Completed dresses can be shipped to:

  4. You need to examine the fabric. Karen Millen Dresses meant for special occasions are often made from cotton, silk, brocade or linen. Nonetheless, the kind of fabric that the Karen Millen dress must have should be one that's ideal for the time and period when you'll wear clothes. This means that dresses produced from thick fabrics should end up being worn for colder several weeks and dresses with slim fabrics are for springtime and summer.
