The women who make the dresses for needy third world children out of pillow cases are in dire need of elastic. If you have any elastic or would like to purchase some at a fabric store, it would be put to good use. The size most needed is ¾ inch to 1 inch which is used for making little boy shorts. The size needed for little girls varies anywhere from ¼ inch to ¾ inch. It will all be put to good use. Don’t forget they are always open for pillow case donations as well as fabric.
