Design Wall - January 28

Wow, January is almost over!

My Design Wall has something different this week - Little Dresses for Nicaragua.  This is my quilt guild's charity for this year.  We had a work day Jan. 19, which I wasn't able to make it to, but I did make my share of dresses at home.

These little dresses were really pretty quick to make, once I got an assembly line going for myself.  This is the small (2-4) size.  I also made two mediums, two larges and two extra-larges.   The pattern for these is free on the Nancy's Notions website.  There is only fabric, elastic, and double-fold bias tape involved in making these.

These dresses will be donated to a group making a healthcare mission trip to Nicaragua in June.  I hope some little girls there enjoy them.  It's hard to imagine wearing a sundress right now - we had several days below zero last week!

So, this is the fourth item of my four things to do for January.  I can start on my February UFO list a few days early.

Thanks for stopping by!
