Repurposed Pillowcase Dresses…

I had the privilege today of witnessing not only a great act of kindness, but a fabulous repurposing project.  My cousin Gina is going to Africa in May, and she and her friends and family are sewing pillowcase dresses for her to take to Kenya where they will be giving them to poor little girls.  These pillowcases were donated or bought second hand for this generous cause.  The pattern is relatively simple – just a bit of labor and lots of love required.  Gina is going to Africa through a program called HEART and also hopes to work with WEEP (Women’s Employment Empowerment Program).  Here is the link for the dress pattern:
