Some of our dresses are off on their travels...


Louise has written a wonderful post about a Backpack project by Mary's Meals - a charity that provides daily meals to children in school in developing countries like Malawi and Liberia to encourage school attendance.  They are an amazing country currently feeding over 500,000 children in 16 countries!
Her little girl Izzy is taking part with her school so Louise has contacted the charity and they are putting one of the little dresses for the Dress a Girl around the world scheme in each backpack........and some of the ones we made are in the 50 that are going  :-) :-)   Please pop over to Louise's blog and read all about the wonderful charity work and check out the gorgeous pics of the little girls that some of our dresses are going to.....do leave her a comment to support her in all the amazing work she does to organise this making little dresses scheme.

If it doesn't make you want to take up sewing then I will be surprised..... if only to make a little dress for one of the gorgeous children who have so little in life.  We will continue to make dresses for as long as we have fabric to make them.....and thankfully we have so many wonderful friends who have donated gorgeous fabrics that we will be sewing for a while yet.

Been and had a look at the "backback project" and spotted the little mauve cross-over dress that I sent in the parcel. Thank you for passing it on.

Hi Annie! So glad Amy liked the card, I made it a while back and it was waiting for a special baby to come along - I already blogged it :) - phew, way back in February so it's been waiting a while! http://pixiescraftyworkshop.blogspot.com/2011/02/woyww-88.html

No luck in town with materials yesterday - off to the local charity shop sometime this coming week for a nosy though! Have a great weekend.

Hugs, Di xxx

Wonderful to hear this Annie. I can't sew but we always took part in the shoeboxes for Charity when the children were at primary school which was a pleasure to do.
