Hi Collin! I’ve emailed you before about how I had couponed for my trip to Honduras. Well, I finally got to go and it was awesome!!!! While I was down there I saw where a lady had made 200 of these t-shirt dresses (along with a few pillowcase dresses) to give out. How cute and simple could these be? And how happy these kids were to get them! So we started making them!

I used Kohl’s email coupons to get free little kids t-shirts and we used scrap fabric on the bottom. We found some plain shirts at Michaels and made the pocket tee dresses! Our church has started making these now and taking up little girls clothes (used or worn!) to make them. Here’s a picture of a little girl in Honduras holding her dress and then a picture of the 7 dresses we’ve made! 🙂
