800,000 children in foster care?
Many of these children move from place to place with
and certainly nothing to carry their
few belongings in.
Just imagine if each child had a fun pillowcase.
Million Pillowcase Challenge since the beginning.
Recently All People Quilt issued a challenge to vote
on your favorite
FREE pillowcase pattern.
I guess it is fitting that the train pillowcase won.
There seems to be an inspiring comparison between
the winning pillowcase
and the Million Pillowcase Challenge.
So, I have taken the liberty to give this pattern a new name,
the little engine that could.
That’s perfect, right?
to the half million mark.
Now is the time for everyone to throw some
coal in the engine and help.
So, today is the day many people are posting
their version of the train pillowcase pattern and
donating it to a local charity.
Here is my pillowcase.
had arrived and I was dying to sew with the organic cotton.

pieces from my scraps to make the train parts.
I must say, sewing on the organic was dreamy.
