5 Sewing Service Projects

5 Sewing Service Projects

Sewing is such an awesome hobby, and one of the most fulfilling ways to use your sewing skills is through service. There are many worthy organizations that are in need of donations from those of us with sewing talent. Wouldn’t this be a great way to get a child interested in sewing and service at the same time? I have gathered up 5 awesome opportunities here for you.

Sewing Service Projects

1. The Sew Powerful Purse Project.

This organization provides purses to adolescent girls in Africa so they have a way to carry sanitary products, which helps to keep them in school.


2. Days for Girls Hygiene Kits.

Donators create kits including cloth menstrual pads and related hygiene products to send to girls in Africa.


3. Capes for Kids Sewing Project

Provides superhero capes for kids in Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital. There are sew and no-sew options. What kid doesn’t want to be a superhero?


4. Project Linus

Collects and distributes handmade blankets to kids all over the country who are in hospitals, shelters, and other traumatizing circumstances. They have chapters in all 50 states.


5. Dress a Girl Around the World

This charity exists to bring hope and dignity to women around the world. For many of these girls, this will be the only dress they ever own. To date, they’ve delivered over 2,000,000 dresses to girls around the world.

  1. Our sewing group are making kimonos for preemies in Africa. How do i get the pattern for the heart?

  2. We have a local summer camp for kids dealing with cancer. Each child is given a pillowcase, which is donated. Talking with a friend from church I found out about this project. Check with the local quilt quilds, they also do service projects.

  3. I am looking for something to sew like the hearts, children’s pillows, teddy bears, dolls etc. to make as donations and would like for them to go to a children’s hospital, orphanage, etc. hopefully somewhere not too far from me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    1. Hi Janet,
      Try calling local hospital volunteers. I know at our hospital, volunteers are in charge of donations.
      Also, maybe check with your local police department, shelters, etc.
      Good luck with your search💜
