Thank you for your interest in the Princess Pillowcase Project. We would love for you to get involved and join us in our mission to help children all over the world.


to the project!

Sewing dresses and shorts with love to bring smiles to needy children around the world.

We are a group of volunteers, home-based in Carroll County, MD, who sew dresses for girls and shorts for boys, which are then personally delivered by missionaries, members of mission teams, and medical teams. We also donate and support Samaritan's Purse's Operation Christmas Child.  This organization fills shoeboxes and sends them to needy children in over 100 countries.


By year's end, over 25,000 handmade dresses and shorts, collectively, will have been delivered to needy children in the United States, South and Central America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Who We Are

Dresses for Girls

We sew dresses ranging in size from 6 months to 16 from a pillowcase, or in most cases cotton fabric.  

Shorts for Boys

We sew shorts for boys sizes 2-16 with elastic waistbands and pockets. 

Underwear for Girls

Whenever we can afford it, we send underwear along with the dresses.
