Just Finished

Just finished are the boy and girl bereavement gowns in the less than 1 lb size. I photographed them with a bill for comparison. I see so many photos of teeny tiny babies just wrapped in a hospital blanket. I hope this gives the parents a little bit of comfort. Oh, the little bonnet I used this time was new for me. It's from the June newsletter on the Care Wear site. It's not as pretty as Nancy Coburn's (Ginger Snaps Designs), but easier.

And the moon..... I've sewn them on the inside of the back of the tail of the dress. I'd really like some just a tad bit smaller.


That's about all the charity sewing I'm going to get done for now. Next up are shirts for Hawaii. Here are the ones that Hannah and I will wear. Hannah's is McCall's pattern M4497 and mine is Simplicity 4589. When I showed them to Jason, he wanted one, too. LOL! Problem.....I got all of this fabric at JoAnn's. UGH! I'm not sure what to do. Either buy more fabric or not make him one or see if a friend somewhere else could overnight it to me????????

Candy,

I couldn't find your email address, so I answered the questions you asked about the blankets we made last weekend in the comments section of my blog.

I am inspired by all the work you do in memory of Emma Grace. Love the little moon buttons.

Hi Candy ... I love the little bereavement gowns you made. Is that the gown pattern from the Carewear website? They have such beautiful patterns there!
Thanks for sharing all the work you do!

Cheryl, this particular pattern isn't from CareWear. I've collected things from all over the last several months. This one came from a Threads of Love chapter with the copy right belonging to Rosemary Grayson for non-commercial purposes. I don't know of a link to it online.
