Little Dresses for Africa and a Winner

My Quilty Friend Jan over at
is having a drive to sew up some
Little Dresses for Africa.

Sew and Sow Farm

I had time to sew three on my own and
then these two,
I taught some young seamstresses/quilters
some valuable skills.

They learned to make bias tape for
the ties,
make casing for the elastic,
hem the bottom,
and most important give of their
time and talent to others in need.

These are their two dresses.

If you have an hour of time and a yard or so
of fabric, you too
can whip one of these up and
give to a child in need.

For those of you who have been participating
in the In Our Garden Block of the Month,
the winner of these beautiful fabrics
was Sheri Baker. 

Congrats Sheri!!
You will love these fabrics.
Thanks again to Timeless Treasure
for the lovely giveaway prize.
