Using your Sewing for Good-The Red Island Project Needs Help

The Red Island Project

In looking for an organization to give receiving blankets that I was planning to make and give, a friend of mine referred me to The Red Island Project.

The Red Island Project works with women in Madagascar to provide a safe and educational environment in pregnancy, birth, and beyond. One of the most tangible ways their help can be seen is that they present each woman with a layette for her newborn. This consists of an outfit, a receiving blanket and a hat.

I know you are wondering how can you help. 

Can you make one, two, or more sets or even partial sets for The Red Island Project to present to the women when they take their babies home?

The outfits are dress, pants and pajamas. 

Please let me know what you can help with and I will contact you on how to get the items to The Red Island Project.


  1. Oh how I wish I could help...but my plate is SO FULL right now. Bless you for doing this, I know there will be a lot of grateful recipients.

  2. Thanks Vanessa. I don't need to get these to her until the end of May. If you happen to be at a fabric store and find some fabric in your cart, you are more than willing to participate!
