Pillowcase Dresses for Peru

I made this little dress yesterday while waiting for potatoes to bake. Many of you will remember my dress drive last year. I want to take a few more with me this year to Peru , just not quite as many.  
Thank you to those who have already sent some!
It all started with this photo of fellow team member in Guatemala. I knew if I went again I wanted to bring some with me!

In Bolivia I got to hand them out personally to the little girls I met. 
I remember this little girl very vividly. She was living in the village that only had contaminated water. This was one of the water well projects your money contributed to!

In a few short months I'll be heading to Peru and would love to distribute more dresses. If you want to make one or a few, I'd be thrilled!

Click HERE for many links to directions. I found Nancy Notions to be the one I liked the best.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity!


  1. So cute! I m sorry my health issues will keep me from making litle dresses this time, but I m sure other quilters will pitch in!

  2. I would love to send you a few. My email is Let me know where I should send them.

  3. Working on some dresses for Peru. Will email you with tracking number when they are mailed.

  4. Lori, you certainly have accumulated some amazing memories of your trips. I think the dresses are another great idea for Peru. I'll try to get at least one done... and maybe give it to you in person??

  5. What a wonderful thing! Good for you and everybody involved. the little dresses look like sweet pinafores.
