Twirls for Girls Toys for Tots

Tonight I was able to sew a cute little twirl skirt with the fabric extras I had for the Twirls for Girls campaign that You Can Make This is having for Toys for Tots! This was such a fun project! This was also my first time sewing a charm square project! Not only was I able to sew for such a great cause but I was able to do it with my daughters at my side!! It was an awesome Mommy/Daughter moment! And after I was finished, they thought it was for them to keep and held on to this little bear until they went to bed tonight! I guess I will have to make their dollies a twirl skirt!

It is not too late to participate in the Twirls for Girls! Click here for more information!

Free Sewing Patterns for Twirls for Girls

Knowing that thousands of dolls are donated each year to the “Toys for Tots” foundation, the team at You Can Make This! wanted to create a place where people could freely download patterns and donate the finished projects to their local Toys for Tots units. Little girls love to receive a new doll, and being able to dress that new doll in sweet new clothes is even more fun! Click here to read more!

Sewing Pattern Feedback!

"I never would have believed that I could make something so cute in such a short time"

Now this is the reason I love making patterns!! I received this picture from a Mom who commented on one of my posts asking me if she thought someone with minimal sewing skills could use my patterns. I sent them to her and this is her creation she made for her beautiful daughter! WOW, just adorable!! Thanks for sending the picture, S!

She used the Dress Top Sewing Pattern along with the Boutique Bottoms Sewing Pattern.
