Sewing for Sandy Hook 2

As I told ya’ll the other day, Gina of The Little General and I organized a local pillowcase drive
for the kids at Sandy Hook Elementary. Quilter’s Corner in New Milford is collecting them; they’ve had such an overwhelming response that they expect to have a pillowcase for each child in the district when they return from winter break. It’s a small thing, but handmade items always mean there’s a little love in there!
Last Thursday, we gathered at The Little General! Lots of people came and those that couldn’t, dropped off pillowcases! Thanks to everyone!!
Here’s what we made!

    • That pic was just for you!

      The awesome tree print is from Westminster. It’s by Dena Designs and is a line called Pretty Little Things. I’m not sure what that print is called. My LQS has it; lmk if you need some. I saw it in a magazine and I “needed” it. I’m not as in love with the rest of the line, but this print is awesome!!

  1. My daughter received hers today!!!! Thank you so very very much she is so happy and loved seeing this website :)
