sewing for the wee ones

bonnet preemie angel girl 8-2-14Tiny yellow preemie or angel bonnet, super light and lemony, the tie at the back make the bonnet adjustable to fit a wee noggin. Yellow ties and a satin rose on the other side of the bonnet. August 2nd 2014

bonnets boy newborn 8-2-14

Boy handkerchief bonnets. Kind of difficult to find gender neutral hankies at the antique stores… either neutral ones are HUGE or so used up there no way I can make a bonnet out of them. Well that and I get the sneaking suspicion that bonnets are becoming quite passé and the idea of a bonnet on a boy even for a christening or naming ceremony is just not manly enough… I made 3 none the less! August 2nd 2014

bonnets girl 3-6 month 8-2-14

Bonnets for older babies 3-6 months. Quite feminine these will be making the trek to God’s Tiny Angels for the addicted babies who are a bit older when they go home. August 2nd 2014

Bonnets girl newborn 8-2-14

6 lovely newborn sized hankie bonnets super girlie. I have used up all my hankies! I am hankie free… what ever shall I do?!? These will be going to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia with the next shipment. August 2nd 2014

cheater quilts 8-3-14

2 cheater quilts… found these at Walmart! Every once and a while I can locate cuteness there! These will be either going to God’s Tiny Angels or Project Linus… we’ll have to see how much space there is in the next box. August 3rd 2014

wee hankie bonnets

hanky bonnets 7-20-14
Antique Hanky bonnets. Thankfully there’s an antique store close by that always has hankies! The 2 upper will be going in baby boy gifts. The pink applique will be going in a baby girl gift…the really fun crocheted one will be going to God’s Tiny Angels for a wee little girl… bummer I don’t have any babies available to put this one on it is SO cute!

Just a Little Hankie

I am just a little hankie,

As square as can be; 
But with a stitch or two,

They’ve made a bonnet out of me. 
I’ll be worn home from the hospital, and on special days, 
And then I’ll be carefully pressed and neatly packed away. 
Then on the wedding, I have been told, 
Every well dressed Bride must have something old. 
So what would be more fitting than to find Little Old Me, 
A few stitches snipped and a wedding handkerchief I will be! 
And if per chance, it is a boy, someday he still will wed. 
So to his spouse he can present the handkerchief once worn upon his head!

there will be warm babies

Very productive 5 day staycation!

Angels sets…whew! I finished all I had cut out and started.  The teeny diapers are via Teeny Tears:http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ .The no sew caps are via: http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/2012/10/no-sew-hats.html  and the 12 inch lovies are thrown in so the wee angels can be snuggled.  I worked on these over three days between other projects and celebrations.  Haven’t decided where these will go yet…perhaps a hospital through Teeny Tears and any left over will go to God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia. December 26th, 27th & 28th 2013

Angel Buntings for angels too tiny and fragile for clothing.  I made 4 smalls (on the right) and 6 larges (on the left) the pattern for these can be found at Angel Outfitters http://angeloutfitters.blogspot.com/.  I’m patiently waiting for my white stockinette to arrive so I can make the ultra tiny caps to go with these.  Once assembled these will be sent to Sanford Bemidji Medical Center, OB Department/PETAL Program.

good weekend to cut flannel

 

About 40 + burp cloths ready to sew…figure half will go to God’s Tiny Angels and I hope I can send the other half to Wright County for the young mommies.

I noticed I cut too many girlie ones so cut out another pile of only boy shades… November 23-24 2013

Super cute preemie day gown opened up to show the cute beastie fabric.  Got this pattern from:http://www.miraclebabies.org.au/get-involved/knitting-and-sewing/

3 preemie gowns totally done so far.  I might look into purchasing a snap setter…

http://www.miraclebabies.org.au/miraclebabies/assets/File/Premature…

For some reason the large version prints right off the page so this one is ‘small’ I also cut out 4 ‘medium’ we shall see how big they turn out. I could get 2 smalls with coordinating fabrics out of 2 fat quarters with a nice sized chunk of left overs to put into the eventual flannel sweetie quilt. I made mine out of flannel since I’m sewing in the mighty north! November 24th 2013

busy weekend sewing for angels

Had a busy weekend sewing for angels!

2 larger angel wrap sets ready for packaging: each set will have an angel wrap, matching set of teeny diapers and a teeny no sew cap with coordinating ribbon.  Everything is made with 2 coordinating fabrics so the nurses can choose which fabric works the best for each angel.  I love the green flannel with all the bugs on it! Definitely a boy’s wrap.  It’s lined with blue pin stripe.  The lovely rose flannel is lined with pink stars. These will be joining many other baby goodies in January 2014 for the first box of the New Year traveling to WV to God’s Tiny Angels. November 17th 2013
