Before we get to the winners, I want to say a great big Thank you to everyone that participated in our LDFA Sew-Along! We made a total of 28 Little Dresses and 1 pair of Boy Shorts! Woohoo! I know the 28 little girls and the little boy that receives these clothes will be so happy!
I have to be honest about something. At first I was kinda disappointed that we didn't have better participation . Especially from people that I think of as friends. I probably should not say that, but it is how I feel. HOWEVER, that wise old farmer hubby of mine set me straight real quick! . He said "One dress is more than some of those children had two days ago! And you all made 28 dresses and a pair of shorts! That's 29 children that ya'll have helped!" You know what? He is so right! That is 29 Children that we have helped have a little bit more dignity, a little bit more hope and maybe even given them a little boost in their self esteem! So THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart! I truly appreciate each and every item that ya'll made!
Little Dresses for Africa accepts clothing and monetary donations ( to get the dresses to their needed destinations) year around! So if you haven't finished making all that you wanted to make, you still can. Or you can send what you have completed and then make some more.
So, now , guess what? We had 6 prizes and 6 participants (besides me)! So WOOHOOOOOOOO ! EVERYONE that participated gets a prize! Two will get Aurifil thread sets and four will get a $50.00 gift certificate from the Fat Quarter Shop!
