Love to sew or quilt but don't know what to do with your beautiful accomplishments? Be an Angel!
We would love to have Angels to sew baby/preemie outfits, blankets, quilts, small toys, anything you want to make.
Aubrey’s Angels is non profit, charitable ministry, in San Antonio built of love, to help meet the very special needs of precious sick babies and parents who are in need of a smile. We want each family to know, without a doubt, that there are people who love their tiny angels, are praying for them, and want to help by crocheting, sewing, knitting, and quilting hats, booties, afghans, mitts, angel layettes (burial layettes), diaper shirts, etc. working from home. We also make afghans, lap blankets, lap quilts and chemo caps for chemo and dialysis patients. You don’t have to live close to participate!

We make parent bags for moms and dads who spend an enormous amount of time in the hospital waiting room.

Thank you and God Bless you for helping me continue this ministry!

The group is named after my precious granddaughter, Aubrey, who left us to be with Jesus on March 18, 2011 at the age of 9 months.

If you would like to join us or just drop by to see what we are doing and look around, please visit us at:

New Angels are always welcome!!!

Until you've been on the giving or receiving end, You have no idea how appreciated and rewarding this kind of work can be.

We lost our first granddaughter in 2009. During her brief 59 hours of life, and her dear mommy's over 2 weeks in and out of ICU, we were surrounded with the support of a loving community. Our extended family became a fixture in the hospital, camping out in each of 7 different waiting rooms in turn. Because of the long distance from our home town to the NICU, we probably stayed more than an average family would be expected to. In 2011, we welcomed a grandson at the same hospital, and are looking forward to another granddaughter this fall - and many of the hospital staff remember our family.

During that time, and since, my knitting and now my sewing really helped soothe my nerves. I joined a prayer-shawl group that focuses on cancer patients. They are supportive of my personal mission for preemies. I still make and donate items to the NICU in my granddaughter's memory. I started with tiny preemie hats and have just expanded to whatever I can imagine would be useful to a preemie family. The coolest thing ever is to see a baby around our little town, at church or in a photo, and know that they are wearing something that I made. Knowing that the big city NICU is serving our little community too and knowing that when families are far from home, they're still surrounded by love.

I have 6 sewing machines, and my profile only lets me list one ;-(

Project Linus and Lutheran World Relief are other worthy projects. Also Quilts of Valor. QOV has some guidelines that kind of "encourage" people to buy certain brands of fabric, but the other two are more locally driven. Lutheran World Relief accepts whole-cloth quilts, so non-quilters like I am feel welcome. And I'm not even a Lutheran. ;)

I donate warm items to local schools to be given to any child who is cold... even if they are rich and just forgot their mittens. I love to make stuff so cute that anyone who gets it because they NEED it and who then wears it with pride and then they can be envied rather than pitied. "Better than nothing" was the norm when I was a girl in a large family and truly, "better than nothing" is really pitiful.

I sewed preemie items for a group for a while and found it very rewarding. Because of several other commitments, I am not in a position to sew preemie stuff now. I do have some unused patterns from New Conceptions for Preemie-Yums layette items and would be glad to send them to you if your group could use them.

I also have their pattern for Diaper Covers Deluxe and Poo-Pockets diapers, but those are for size 7 lbs and up.

Good luck to you on your mission, and pm me if you would like the patterns.
