Sewing For a Cause

    This is fabulous! You and Cora did a wonderful job and what a beautiful way to serve. I love that you got the young women involved too. Wish I could have popped in to your wednesday night activity and sewed along with you :). And 36 skirts?? Impressive!

    What a wonderful outreach to those so much in need! God bless you all for your fabulous work. I know all the girls in Liberia will love these and I see a love that will certainly carry over into other important works for a lifetime.

  3. Jordan says:

    What an amazing girl she is! Wish Tabatha had been there to help too!

  4. Jane Chérie says:

    Your daughter is beautiful inside out! Wonderful project you did there! And the skirts look really pretty! I hope one day my daughter will like to sew as well!

  5. Cara says:

    Yay for Cora! The skirts look so fun and colorful. I'm sure they will be loved!

  6. Tina Sowders says:

    What an awesome and inspiring young lady! Many praises to you Cora.

  7. Carolyn says:

    Looks fabulous, I’m inspired, thanks Cora

    Where do you send the completed skirts?

    • Tessie Snow says:

      Hi Evenlyn, We sent these skirts to an orphanage called "Faith Center" in Liberia. Unfortunately there isn’t really a mailing address. We sent them in a huge crate with other things that the orphanage needed.

  9. Patti Walsh says:

    What a great project ! In case you didn’t know, to save running the elastic thru with a safety pin, you can sew the elastic into a circle. You can fold the top down and stitch the elastic in at the same time. I usually use a zipper foot.

  10. Rachel says:

    Just brilliant! Well done. Thank you for your kindness, I’m sure you made a lot of young people very happy! Xxx

    I just came across this blog while I was looking for shoebox ideas for orphans. Myself and several others help support an orphanage in Uganda. They would definitely benefit and appreciate a project like this for their orphanage if you are so inclined or anyone else reading this. Currently they have about a 160 children their boys and girls.

  12. Kathaleen O’Connor says:

    So proud of you Tessiefay. My youngest grand girl is 12. Has been sewing since 8. Thank to your Mom for grooming you to follow your dreams

  13. Melissa Grace says:

    I’m going to use the tutorial you linked to make a skirt for both of my daughters & for another young girl at our church with a difficult family situation. Thank you.

  14. Rachel Martin says:

    Where did you mail them? I’m working with a women’s shelter and we’d like to make some skirts to send to help out.

    • Tessie Snow says:

      I’m so sorry I no longer have contact with this organization. I hope you can find somewhere to do good with your sewing!

  15. KC says:

    What a wonder,, Unselfish project.
    I’d love to make some for the “Operation Christmas Child” boxes. Starting now would give me time to make some myself and plan a few work day sessions for our women at our Church.
    Do you have measurements for the different sizes. That would be so helpful!
    You have been blessed for your caring heart.

  16. Albertha says:

    I would love to help by sewing skirts, or anything for your charity.

  17. Cathy says:

    • Tessie Snow says:

      Hi Cathy! I’m unfortunately not donating here anymore but I would love to hear of any other charities that you may know of!
