Traveling Pillowcase Project
A humble pillowcase can transform the way women and children see their shelter bed by turning it into a place to travel away from your circumstances and into your dreams.
These bright and patterned pillowcases are handmade with love. The Traveling Pillowcase Project will remind every woman and child the wonderful power of our minds and how this one amazing tool can bring happiness and joy even through the hardest times.
Everyone deserves the inspiration to Dream
Many who receive a pillowcase aren’t lucky enough to be living in an Enchanted Makeovers transformed shelter. The photos on the left are just a few examples of the look of a typical shelter. As you can see there is a distinct lack of color, beauty and inspiration.
What you are making here is just a humble pillowcase, but believe me, it is so much more than that! Imagine having a small space of color, joy and inspiration you can look at every day and rest your head on at night.
Never underestimate the power of hope!
How to get started
You can participate in the program in three ways.
Organize a pillowcase making party with family, friends or a group.
Make and send your individual pillowcase(s).
Make a monetary donation to this program.
We are looking for brightly colored and fun patterned fabric for our pillowcases. The more fun the better! Think: rocket ships, superheroes, unicorns and animals. When you’re at the fabric store, really think about what you’re picking out. Make it something that you believe will help transport women and children to a different place in their minds. While sewing is required, this is a simple project with an estimated time-frame of 10-30 minutes (depending on sewing ability). While sewing machines are recommended, pillow cases can also be hand-sewn.
Please ship pillowcases to:
Enchanted Makeovers, “Traveling Pillowcase”, 12663 Hipp St, Taylor, Mi 48180.
All pillowcases are distributed locally & nationally to shelters from our Taylor location.
