Choosing Fabric and Yarn to Craft for an Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Gift

I am currently focusing on my 2 to 4 year old girl boxes for my 2014 Operation Christmas Child shoe box collection.  I plan on including a pillow case style dress in each.  I have quite a bit of fabric I have been given or inherited, some was received as Christmas presents for this very purpose.  My husband picked up some flip flops for me to tuck in these boxes and so I have been beginning with those and matching fabric to them.

Here is a bright piece I have been just dying to make up -- I love to include bright colors in my boxes.  When my husband found a pair of blue/teal flip flops I knew it would match perfectly.  I have some plain teal fabric scraps from another project and I'm adding orange bias tapes to it.  I also have orange and blue/teal yarn that I will make a hat & scarf set for the box.  I had a lot of fun matching these supplies and using up some of my stash.  I'll bring you the finished product when I have it completed.

UPDATE:  You can see the finished dress and other goodies I included here:  Butterfly Dress for Operation Christmas Child Shoebox.
