Whatcha Craftin’ ~ Pillowcase Dresses & Shorts for Uganda

on June 12, 2013


Ok, I know that I have blogged about this topic about 2 or 3 times already, but I wanted to show you the final line up of what I made. I was really excited to be able to participate in this great cause! I really hope the girls and boys love these clothes we’ve made for them!

Here are all the pillowcase dresses I made, 6 in total. For these I mainly used fat quarters I bought at Walmart for $1 each.


These ones are my favorites! šŸ™‚



The orange one has white butterflies on it. SO cute!!

And here are all the shorts I ended up making, 9 total.


These three below were my favorite. I had fun picking out fat quarters for these at Walmart, too!


My husband was kind enough to send out the package to Mallory last week while I was in Reno. I hope she gets them before she leaves! I was a little behind in sending them.

My goal now is to make 2-3 dresses a month, at least, to send to Mallory next year. I also want to make that many shorts, possibly more. They’re so easy and fun to make! šŸ™‚

Did you participate in this charity? If so how many dresses did you make? My sister and her church ward ended up giving them baby blankets and other needed supplies. That’s Awesome!

Thanks for stopping by today! I’m finally getting back into the swing of things after my little vacation to Reno and school getting out. I hope you’re enjoying your summer so far! Come back on Friday for a fun Pinterest Pick post!

    I made 7 or 8 dresses. I forgot to take a picture. Thanks for letting me know about this. Does she do this every year? Do you have a pattern for the shorts?

      I think she does do this every year. There are a bunch of bloggers that have free shorts patterns. I’ll email you a few.

I LOVE to hear from you!
