What a great post on Peggy Pickle’s blog this morning. Lots of lovely images showing the children of Great Mercy school and orphanage, western Kenya, wearing their pillowcase dresses. Alison did such a fab job organising this and a lot of fun was had in the making and embellishing of them. I have so enjoyed following her progress and seeing what a difference it makes.
I really wasn’t expecting to see any of the few that I made among the hundreds that were made and shipped but to my surprise, peeking out from the back row, 2nd in from the left, I do believe that’s one that I embellished at the Pillowcase Embellishment party.
Dead chuffed to see it in situ and so very glad to have played my tiny part in this fabulous project. Well done Peggy Pickles. You are a star!

Aw that’s wonderful! How amazing to see a little girl wearing your dress. xx
Thanks Jane. It is indeed x
That’s so awesome. Such a great idea and to see the dresses actually being worn, especially the one you worked on…I got a bit teary!
Thankyou mujerboricua 🙂
Fabulous!!! Don’t they look great too! I am hoping to have a weekly session for sewists to come to my new shop and studio and make pillow case dresses for this cause. SO inspiring. But to see your handiwork at the other end of the process like that, must be lovely!! 🙂
That’s a wonderful idea. It was such a wonderful way to spend an evening. A lot of the ladies had absolutely no sewing experience and they still created lovely designs and we all had such a giggle.
thats beautiful.. we had such great time and its so lovely to see the dresses actually on the kids.
We did indeed. x
Glad you managed to ‘find’ your dress! Thanks so much for helping out x

Really awesome ladies…. so rewarding to create something that has far more value than the cost of creating it I imagine. Nice.
Thank you. It was indeed. 🙂
