I have just found this appeal on folksy for people to make pillowcase dresses to send to little girls around the world.
The campaign is being organised by hope4women international. See their site at

Thanks for this link. I can't make one just now, but I will soon. My 2nd DD gets married next week and I'm up to my eyeballs in stuff to do. Today I have a huge bundle of long twigs to spray dark blue to use for table centers! I have made my GD a pretty dress for the event, so the least I can do is make a dress for another little girl somewhere. I will post pictures when I've made it.

What a lovely idea. Would love to do one and will definitely try to make some time over the Christmas holidays to have a go. Thank you for sharing it.

I will definitely do this in the new year.

This is a really nice idea. My mum and her friends where she lives have a kind of sewing and knitting group and I am sure they would love to have a go. I'll have to print out the details for them. Typically I threw out a lot of pillowcases recently but am sure I still have more than enought to have a go. Thanks for posting this.
