Pretty mades!

What little girl doesn’t love a pretty dress?
Our Happy House girls, from tinies to teens, love having a something new to wear.
And thanks to a group of Fylde coast sewing enthusiasts attending a workshop tomorrow at the Sewing Sanctuary, Marsh Mill, Thornton, we will be receiving 20 more pretty dresses just like these.
From 8am today sewers will be popping in to make a frock – taking their own material, or buying the materials (for less than a fiver) to make a frock for a child in the impoverished world.
Working to a simple pattern created by a charity called Dress a Girl Around the World, they will make a frock to be given to charity.
Because of the constraints of postage and airline baggage allowances we could only promise to take 20 for the Happy House, plus these made and donated by people wanting to help but who won’t be able to make it tomorrow, which Auntie Libby brought with her this week.
Our kids love them and we are extremely grateful to all those who are taking part tomorrow.

Big thanks to the Sewing Sanctuary and to all those sewing for thinking of us. Have lovely day, and happy sewing!
