    Do any of you do sewing projects for charitable causes? What kind? How did you start? Which charities?

    Our hospital is very appreciative of baby quilts, and pillows for patients in the children’s ward. One of my friends make small quilts out of scraps for the local animal shelter. The dog or cat gets to take them to their new home. My friend enjoys trying out new quilting techniques without fear of judgement. The animals are always happy with the quality of her work. 🙂

    I’ve made pillowcase dresses for “Little Dresses for Africa”. Their website is http://www.littledressesforafrica.org

    I made pillowcase dresses, but after making a popover dress for my daughter, I realized that those would be perfect too! The only “rule” that this organization has about the dresses sent are that they do not have any fasteners. Some of the villages that these dresses end up in do not have ways to repair buttons, zippers, snaps, etc.

    I’ve also participated in a project on http://www.crafthope.com

    I found out about both of these organizations through blogs that I’ve read or word of mouth. I’ve enjoyed doing charity work and hope to do more in the future!

    Hope this helps!
