Hi there, Our Internet is being stupid and I dropped my phone in the sea on Monday... so I've had a week without facebook, phone and Internet... just about killed me! How did we survive without these things?
Anyway, I wanted to share a email and photos I received recently from a reader in America....
I've attached a photo of the 22 dresses I made for little girls in Africa. There is an organization called "Little Dresses for Little Girls" that arranges to get the donated dresses to the girls in Africa. I found it on the Internet.
I made headbands like your flower clips to go with the dresses. Thanks for the inspiration.

Here's the website..... Little dresses for Africa
To date they have received dresses and donations from all 50 states across the USA and received well over 175,000 little dresses that have been distributed in 24 countries of Africa!
None from Australia? Who's keen for a little sewing project?
I'm going to send some dresses in July and thought I'd see if anyone else wants to sew a few to send with mine. I'd like to send around 50 dresses in total.
I'll put together a tutorial of simple dresses to make... like the pillow case dress.
If you'd like to join me making a few dresses for Africa please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks for sharing the link Gloria.
Gloria also made some flowers to go with the dresses for Africa.
I'll finish with this photo of Gloria's Easter tree.
The other you've been featured post will be next Monday... sorry for the delay.
Love Nikki xx
