Recently, our Women's Ministry at our church has been sewing "pillowcase dresses" for underprivleged girls. Anyone can make these, and ship to the charity who distributes them. Patterns and instructions are at: http://dressagirlaroundtheworld.com/. Here are some of our recent creations:
Another thing I've sewn lately was a comfort quilt for a friend who recently had cancer surgery. This idea was not mine - it was a brilliant brainwave of another friend. We whipped this up quickly with scraps from my pile, and used fabric markers to write cheery messages, prayers and Bible verses to comfort our friend.
This quilt is just lap size. Here's hoping that it will help keep her warm, and remind her of how many people are praying for her when we can't be there.
There are many things that can be sewn for others, and several charities that accept items. So keep your sewing machines busy!
