Dress MORE girls around the world

Since this spring when I learned about the Dress A Girl Around the World organization, I have had fun using up my remnants on lots of easy pillowcase dresses. This weekend I finished a bunch more.




ADDED 5 MORE on 9/8/12

Re: Dress MORE girls around the world

i have SO much fabric that I need to burn through...i was thinking 'crazy quilts' (all sorts of different fabrics) to donate to local hospitals, but now I know what i'm going to do with the larger cuts of fabric
adorable dresses and thanks for the idea!
