The girls from the orphanage in Peru were wrapped (literally) to receive new dresses.

Here is a sample of a cocoon sleep sack to help with any confusions when sewing.  Hopefully this shows where the velcro goes and provides a visual aid to the pattern.

The Peru project is up and running and will be completed by July 2013. The first part is to provide 29 girls in a children's home in Sacred Valley in Peru with warm, merino dresses. The second part is to provide merino trousers and hats for a community centre "Tombola" on the outskirts of Cusco. Each child in the community wins an article of clothing. The third part is to provide merino newborn hats and cotton cocoon sleepsacks for a maternity hospital.  If you would be interested in contributing your time to sew these articles please email
