after my recent pillowcase transformation
a friend contacted me to ask if i'd be interested
in making pillowcase dresses that would be
sent on a missions trip to Africa.
honestly, my first thought was
"that sounds really cool, but i don't have time".
but the more i thought about it,
the more inspired i became to give it a try.
i got instructions,
found a few cute pillowcases
at value village (for $.99)
and got to work!
i think they turned out just right!
as i sewed, i prayed for
each little girl that will wear these.
i prayed that these small gifts
would be used to draw them to the Lord,
that they would see that He has
so many good gifts for them,
and that they would grow into
women of integrity and strength.
i feel honored to give this small bit.
if you are interested in making pillowcase dresses,
these follow a pattern similar to this one.
but instead of adding ribbon or boughten bias tape,
these used the part of the pillowcase that
had been taken off the top to make bias tape.
i especially like this idea because
there is no waste of material or extra cost.
i found cotton pillowcases to work best.
i plan to make some for my girls soon!
