A Change of Pace
Our guild is making and sending dresses to Africa with a member who will be going there in a few weeks. We're using information from Little Dresses for Africa, a project you can read about on their web page. One way to make the dresses is from gently used pillowcases, and I made one that way. But since I've got stash fabric that is suitable, why not use it? These are easy to make, and quick. I made the pillowcase one in less than half an hour last night, and the from scratch one in a bit more today.
My other project was to make pillowcases for the twins. I had the brainstorm of piecing their names into the band. When you have young geniuses who can find "A for Aidan" and "C for Conor" on cereal boxes, you should celebrate, right? I wish I'd paid a bit more attention to fabric choices, but these were fun.
