Sewing For Africa

I have two more weeks to finish sewing projects to donate to sell at the Kilgoris Marketplace to benefit The Kilgoris Project.  TKP is an amazing program that is totally transforming the lives of a community of people living in Kilgoris, Kenya.

My friend from church is one of the major players in this organization and a few months ago she asked if I would sew some things to donate.  She had at least 5 rubbermaid bins of fabric that people had donated to her and a bunch from Africa directly.  I filled up one bin with a bunch of fabric and I have been busy sewing ever since.  I made a bunch of random stuff until I finally figured out what the majority would be.  It turns out that fabric cards are fabulously cute, so I have a ton of those.  Then I made these adorable journal covers too, which I don't have any pictures of yet, oops!

Here are some of the cards I finished this week!

Love these, Amy Butler fabric!

I hope the people who come to shop think they are as cute as I do!! If you are near the Charlotte, NC region and want to check out our local artists please come to the Marketplace. It is going to be November 18th and 19th at Kadi Fit in Cornelius.

I am linking up to Sew and Tell Fridays for the first time today!!


  1. These are really great, and such a worthy cause! Africa is near and dear to our hearts, as well. What a wonderful thing you're doing!

  2. Fantastic! I'm sure they'll be great sellers. Best of luck!
