The things I did on the last week of the year 2015

Want to share with you the things I made in the last week of the year 2014 and on the first day of the new year 2015. I was in the mood to make things for my house, my nephew and my two nieces one of whom is getting married in a week. And on new year's day because I was not doing anything I sewed 3 dresses and one pair of shorts.

The first thing I did was these two birds for my niece who is getting married soon. They wanted to decorate their wedding cake with birds and have their names written on it. The birds are made of kraft cardstock.
And because of these two wedding cake birds, I was inspired to make more birds out of felt this time and it is hanging in the entry to the bedrooms of my house.
Then I remembered my four-year-old nephew Ewan who likes wearing superhero costumes so I decided to make him a superhero cape with his name on it. I made sure I finished it in a day (as sometimes I lose my momentum) so I can give it to him during our family new year's eve dinner.
And for my other niece who wanted to have new pjs, I made two pjs for her. Bought the fabric materials from Spotlight who was on sale after Christmas at $2.95 per metre and are 100% cotton. And now am wishing I bought more of these materials to make into dresses in the future.
And here are the 3 dresses and one pair of boys shorts I made on the first day of the new year 2015. The dress with sleeves and the pair of shorts are going to be included in the Dress Sponsorship Program I am currently running to raise money for the Dress A Girl Australia well to provide clean water for the people of Kalagi Uganda. The other two dresses with fabric materials donated by the Millhouse Collections will be allocated for future distribution in 2015. 
If you know of anyone who would like to make a difference in the new year 2015, please mention my Dress for Sponsorship program. They are especially great for people who do not sew. Please help spread the word around. Thank you.

And now for the next item on the agenda is design and print a reunion t-shirt which I am looking forward to attending in Feb in Las Vegas.
