Hands to work as it were… I have most of my family helping out now, my mom crochets the tiny bonnets, one per day. My youngest looms preemie and newborn caps and my grandson helps with the fabric coordination and packaging…
I’ll spend an entire week of cutting, that week end sewing, next week trimming and flipping the following weekend ironing and top stitching. This is about 2 weeks efforts. This weekend I have kids, no sewing… next week I start up sewing for newborns… it’s a vicious circle!

Whew completed a few things this weekend! Finished 8 large sized (32 week gestation) BOY sets of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with a coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies . Super adorable! I have each set bagged up and waiting for a hospital to adopt! July 27th 2014

8 large (32 week gestation) GIRL set of Teeny Tears diapers http://teenytears.blogspot.com/ with wee blankets, one cap with coordinating ribbon and a tiny crocheted bonnet my mom made http://job121.wordpress.com/2013/10/08/angel-baby-bonnet-crochet-pattern-for-stillborn-babies/ .

assortment WIP 7-27-14

Heaping pile of WIP: tinier blankets that will have matching small (18 week gestation) sized diapers, Burp Cloths and bibs awaiting their matching receiving blankets, Owl/Cat tag rattles that will go with the burp/bib/blanket sets waiting for the stuffing, rattles and stitching…and last but not least not a WIP…a finished preemie blanket made of cotton and Minky blanket with Minky…too fuzzy! July 28th 2014

hankie bonnets 7-27-14

3 wee newborn hankie bonnets… I think the 2 tiny ones on the right may be preemie or angel sized since they are SO small.  Now that I’ve found Restore powder I have even more bonnets in process since I managed to get all the antique hankies clean! Alright not all, one is just not attractive at all, no idea why it went from old dingy to grey dingy… bleck! That one will be put back into the eventual hankie quilt box. July 28th 2014

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

Burp cloths via: http://www.trishscrafts.com/receiving_blanket.html the bug ones will be shipped to God’s Tiny Angels with the next shipment, the Christmas / winter ones will be saved for the Christmas in July for God’s Tiny Angels… Already getting a jump on 2014!  December 27th 2013

The last 2 cheater quilts that joined 26 other newborn blankets, lovies and quilts for the newborn blanket drive for God’s Tiny Angels in West Virginia. December 26th 2013

Tiny reversible preemie gowns.  One out of flannel the other out of super summery crinkle cotton…eeeeeeeeeee… December 27th 2013

a little sewing a little thankfulness

Burp cloths in process.  Half will go to God’s Tiny Angels the other half will go to Wright County here in Minnesota for the teen mommies.  Each will have 2 matching burp cloths in a baggie. December 8th 2013

Cheater quilts patiently waiting for some top stitching.  I’m thinking the lovely flowered one will go to a sweet little toddler I know for Christmas.  The other 2 will be joining about 22 other blankets/quilts for the blanket drive for God’s Tiny Angels. December 8th 2013

Flannel and cotton waiting some serious ironing and slicing up…Receiving blankets, teeny diapers, angel wraps, perhaps newborn snap gowns and buntings will be just flying out of this pile bound for God’s Tine Angels, Teeny Tears, Angel Outfitters and perhaps a few will go to the teen mommies here in Minnesota…just need the time and energy!

Thank you card I received from a hospital here in Minnesota that I sent a batch of Teeny Tears diapers to.  I dare say it’s nice to hear occasionally that what I’ve done helps people!

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

2 smaller 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.  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

The remaining 4 angel wrap sets, 3 larger and 1 smaller.  I have a few more at the machine to complete. Everything is made with 2 coordinating fabrics so the nurses can choose which fabric works the best for each angel.  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

A fan of teeny tears diapers trimmed and flipped waiting to be ironed and top stitched so they can join matching angel lovies and teeny caps! 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

Even more teeny tears diapers trimmed and flipped waiting to be ironed and top stitched so they can join matching angel lovies and teeny caps! 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 now I just need to get the lovies done!

Angel Wraps

I’m working on Lay Me Down Wraps, these are the 1st try. 
these are the small ones for up to 18 week gestation angels, the rotery cutter is 8 inches long
I have a larger sized version on the machine for up to 25 weeks gestation angels
these are the cards that will be packaged with each wrap.  I’m also making matching teeny diaper sets and a tiny cap to go with the wraps as well. I got the patterns and the cards from a lovely angel mommy Kaitlyn at Teeny Tears

working on keeping busy!

4 day weekend worth of creativity!

No Sew Angel caps, these ones are for angels up to 18 weeks gestation.  I try to use a multitude of ribbon colors so I can match a cap with an angel set super quick.  This massive amount took a few days of aimlessly watching TV and tying ribbons at the same time. November 3rd 2013

5 sweet Boy angel sets completed and ready to package for God’s Tiny Angels.  I figure these will be shipped out in January 2014 since the November box is already full and taped shut.

November 2nd 2013

8 Cute girlie angel Sets completed and ready to package for God’s Tiny Angels.  I figure these will be shipped out in January 2014 since the November box is already full and taped shut.

November 2nd 2013

I hit Target and Wal-Mart after Halloween to stock up on adorable baby goodies to send to God’s Tiny Angels for Halloween 2014! Plan on getting more spoon/Fork sets and perhaps teething rings to complete each little spooky package.  Of course I managed to locate more New Born than Preemie outfits, but I bought out all I could find…here’s all my mad money with Shamus looking on.  Not to worry though, it will all get washed before being shipped out next year! November 1st 2013 Note: I don’t sew P.J.s really not that good at sewing clothing…
