Pillowcase Dresses for Haiti

So this week I have been spending some time making dresses from pillow cases for girls in Haiti.  A member of our church is leaving in a couple of weeks on a medical mission trip to Haiti, so a few of us from church are making some dresses to send with.  

Here is Olivia, Hailee (a little girl I watch), and Allyson modeling a few of them. 
The picture is a bit blurry, but it is not at all easy trying to get the three of them to stand still!

The pillow cases were donated from a local hotel and some youth members spent some time tie-dying them all, and others of us are sewing them into dresses.  The are very simple to make and are quite fun. 

The girls are having fun helping me with them, and I hope it is teaching them to give to others that aren't as blessed as we are.
