As you may know, on Saturday, we held another Charity Sewing Day at Christchurch Hall in Warminster-this time it was a Sewing Bee! And we had a number of different projects available for all different abilities.
We had another great turn out of wonderful people coming to donate their time and skills to some great causes.
We made 16 more pillowcase dresses for the Dress A Girl Around the World Project
We made 9 pairs of shorts for the boys-these will also be distributed by the Dress A Girl Around the World Charity-if you want to know how to make some simple shorts from an old t-shirt, I have done some a blog post with some instructions at My Make Do and Mend Year.
The dresses and shorts will be taken out to children who are living in poverty in the developing world. They get taken by charities who are going over there to perform other work (for example medical work) in order to keep the costs down. You can find out more about the project here.
And we made some simple heart shaped cushions for the Breast Cancer Unit at the Royal United Hospital in Bath.
Here are some of the ladies hard at work!
Thankyou to each and every person who came and contributed their time and loveliness to another great day!
We will hopefully do another in the Autumn.
If you want to make some yourself in the meantime, all the information you need is here on the brilliant Sew Scrumptious blog :)
