more busy blog
This is a picture of a preemie baby burial gown that I designed. Often times, women come in not even expecting to deliver, let alone have a baby that doesn't make it. We do have a few gowns that were donated to us, but they are usually made from thin cotton and look more like little white cotton baggies than an actual gown. I knit this one to fit a baby that would be about 28 weeks. I was recently told by my coworker that handles all the demise paperwork and pictures that she had used it recently. I wrote the pattern down in my worn "designs by melissa" notebook. I have to tidy it up and translate my own chicken scratch. Once I do, I'll make it available for anybody who wants to knit one.
