    They are all very cute, as is your granddaughter. I put pillow case dresses on my "to do" list about a year ago. Unfortunately, my to do list is many times longer than my "finished" list.

    I, too made pillowcase dresses for the girls in Haiti. My sorority and members of my church joined together to make 75 of these very cute dresses and sent them to Haiti! It was a lot of fun and at the same time, quite rewarding to do something that benefited s many needy youngsters. Would like to post pictures, but can't, for the life of me, remember how to attach the photos! (I guess that's what age does for you

    A friend of mine and I went to one of the schools and the kids all made a pillowcase dress to send to an orphange in Africa. They were so proud of their dresses when they finished Yours are so cute with the extra trims, rick rak.
