She sent me a holiday pareo ( fabric length you wrap round your bikini as a cover up).
It was beautifully soft fabric in hot vibrant colours - just perfect for a couple of little frocks.
She also sent some light curtain fabric- in muted blues/beige/pinks.
I just had to get going straight away.
I added some of the duvet fabric that I had dyed flamingo pink - for pockets and bias binding. It is perfect for those jobs as it is nice and soft. It just takes a while to cut yards of 2" bias strips - but what else would I do on a showery afternoon!!!
So here you are J. Many thanks for your parcel. I am sure you will have made 5 little girls very happy, somewhere in the world.
So - as my title says.... anything will do.
To date we have recycled...
- pillow cases
- laundry bags
- fabric oddments
We are happy to transform anything suitable into a little frock for the "Dress a girl around the world" scheme.
