NEW Extra Small Lay Me Down Wrap

I know at this point my Lay Me Down Wrap has been well received in a number of hospitals :) So I moved forward with it and created a mini version for 14 - 18 weekers :) 


So the doll isn't the best representation but it's all I have :) I changed a sides a little on the smaller version to keep also more of a secure fit for tinier babies.

While I was in updating things I also added a different Directions card so you can get TWO print outs on one page :) 



5 minute Tiny Angel Hat (15- 18 weeks)

So I tend to at times need many hats quick. So here is what I tend to do for small gestations to go with the items I donate. Because of the use of the double crochet it allows for lots of stretch. Hat will be cuffed for smaller gestations and used a beanie for 18 weeks. For a PDF version of this pattern please click here.




5 minute
Tiny Angel Hat
for 15-18 weeks gestation

Supplies:
4ply yarn (caron simply soft is the best)
H hook
Yarn needle
Scissors


Pattern:

ch 2, 6 single crochets in first chain, join to start with a slip stitch

ch 1, sc in same stitch, 2 sc in each stitch around, join with slip stitch

ch 2, dc in same stitch and in each stitch around, join with slip stitch

ch 2, dc in same stitch and in each stitch around, join with slip stitch

ch 2, dc in same stitch and in each stitch around, join with slip stitch

ch 2, dc in same stitch and in each stitch around, join with slip stitch, end




When you weave in ends be sure especially around the cuff they are secure but don't hinder the stretch too much. Do not add ribbon going around, if you wish to add a bow or tie at top of hat.

Please use this pattern for donation or personal use only. Not for sale.

Current Count :)

I wanted to see how much we've sent out this year so far. I don't think this is 100% accurate (I think it is supposed to be higher, but I lost some records about some of the bagged donations). 

So what we've done in the last 3 months:

So far we've serviced 8 different hospitals and 2 different programs

Sent out: 6 Lay Me Down Wraps as "samples"

Sent out: 13 Teeny Tunics

Sent out: 76 diaper sets

Sent out: 177 buntings

If this has just happened in the last THREE months and we haven't even gotten to the large NYC donation yet... what will the rest of the year bring!!

I will need help with the following
(as I'm already running low)

Lay Me Down Wraps
(heavier on the smaller size)

No Sew Hats OR Small MATCHING Hat sets
Small Tye Beanie Baby (or like items)

Any and all other trinkets you might have liked to receive.
