Premature Baby Gowns, it’s been a while…

I haven’t blogged for a while now and what better way to come back to it than by sharing the charity work I am involved with ♥.

Along with a bunch of other fantastic ladies, I have been sewing tiny little gowns for premature babies. The gowns once sewn are sent to the charity Early Buds where they are added to a pack of other goodies and sent out to new preemie parents at hospitals nationwide.Cat in the Hat Premature Baby Gown

Whilst sewing these little gowns I thought to myself, how can I help out the parents of the really early ones too tiny to wear a gown? The result of my musing is a bunch of cheerfully patterned sleep masks. I figured it must be pretty hard to get any kip in the NICU especially with the lights and noises going 24/7 not to mention the natural worry that a new preemie parent faces.

Alternatively you could sponsor the gowns I make. Each of these gowns cost $3 in materials to make. I can provide the sewing skills and each of you can help provide the funds for the fabrics, Velcro and postage.  If you would like to be a part of the giving to this awesome cause please donate $3 (or multiples thereof) to the following account:

  1. This is a great thing you are doing! my babies weren’t tiny dots, but I understand it is very difficult to find suitable clothing for very small babies, especially when they are in intensive care. More power to you!

  2. I think what you are doing is absolutely wonderful. So nice to be able to dress your tiny babys in clothes that DO fit them. The sleep masks are a great idea too
