Another month come and gone. . .
And I didn't finish 5 dresses. . .
I finished 8!!!!
Pillowcase dresses are such a breeze-- but still look so cute! I tend to buy sheets when they are on clearance at Target and Wal-Mart. I picked up a few just last week. Twin sheet sets for $3.50. Do you know how many yards of fabric are in a sheet set?!?!?
Plus, there is a cute little pillowcase that is all ready to whip into a cute little dress.
These dresses will be going to:
an organization that sends dresses to girls throughout the world that are in need. They are actually celebrating their 1 year anniversary in the month of October. The hope is to get up to 10,000 dresses by the end of the month. If you have an extra hour or an extra $10 to donate (for shipping the dresses), pop on over to their site and see how you can help.

For the month of October, my goal is to make 2 baby/kid blankets for Project Linus. I have been donating blankets to Project Linus since waaaayyy back when the only thing I knew how to sew were rag quilts. I made them by the dozens-- literally! When I ran out of friends who had newborns to give them to, I found Project Linus. They donate quilts to children in hospitals. I had a friend back in Kansas who had a baby boy that died before his first birthday. They spent many months in the hospital during that year. She now treasures the blanket they recieved from Project Linus.
And there you have it. I can't tell you how good it feels to actually accomplish a real goal!
What did you sew and donate in the month of September? What are your goals for the month of October?
