Wow. Two posts in one day. A record! ;-) And on a weekend, no less! I am going insane!
Well. Not really. This is a worthy cause! I am going to be stitching up a storm (or trying to) in the next two weeks because I want to contribute to this, an opportunity to sew simple skirts for the girls in THREE African orphanages. The details are all there, if you follow the link.
I thought about waiting to post about it until I had a skirt to photograph and then I thought... "WAIT. WHY would I do that?!?! Perhaps there are a few ladies out there who would be willing to make a skirt or two as well!" Randi would like to have all skirts received by March 31st which means time is a wastin'!
If you are interested in participating in this great effort, please head over to I HAVE TO SAY and tell her so. It isn't all that complicated-even if you haven't sewn clothes before. There is a great step-by-step tutorial of a little girls skirt here and one for bigger girls here.
I am excited because I have been seeking out ways to use my abilities to help those less fortunate. Up until this point, all I have seen is knitting and crochet projects which I am not very fast at.
If any of you decide to do this, please let me know. We can share photos of our creations! I would love to see your skirt! I plan to make at least ONE for a smaller girl and one for a bigger girl. I just asked Randi if we can stray from the pattern a bit as I would like to perhaps make a few dresses for some babies. We shall see.
Please think about participating-what a great thing!
