Very inspiring. Something I will definitely look into, since I have a lot of scraps after sewing for a new granddaughter. Thanks.

Those are so cute! A great way to use up the remaining gross of snaps I bought 12 years ago, too!

Oops, I'd better tell DH what I'm going to do - before he sees the newborn sleeper links under web "Favorites" :-)

Debbie, Wow! You should have been in the charity contest--you would have been near the top of the list! How cute that your son joined in--you are giving him a great lesson, as well as just having fun together. I have put this in my favorites for the free patterns and the inspiration.

These are so cute! My daughter was less than two lbs when she was born, and these kinds of items, sewn by strangers, are appreciated more than you will ever know :o) They are adorable! Thanks for the links for the sleepers- I couldn't find any sleeper patterns when she was born that would fit her, even after coming home! Great that your son helped too-thanks for the review.

Thank you so much for posting this Debbie! One of the newest "nieces" was a premie and I would love to be able to sew her some clothes that fit.

I'd like to encourage any of you who might be inclined to sew for your local NICU. My last baby was a 3 pound preemie and it really helps things feel a little bit normal in the NICU when you can dress your baby in real clothes. At first they can only wear hats diapers and booties or socks, no snaps in incubators. The snaps get hot! But then when they graduate to crib the cute sleepers like the ones shown here are so welcome! (It was so hard to not be able to dress my baby at first! Especially when they were weaning him off of the heat in the incubator! He was cold and I knew it.) I only had a couple of things that were preemie the whole time. I brought him home at just under 6 pounds. Sometimes they come home around 5 pounds, just depending upon their health and how well they are feeding. The first time I held my little tiny red baby he had on a handmade hat made of baby yarn. It helped to know someone cared. Believe me unless you have been there you can't know how alone NICU families can feel. You have this brand new baby that you don't know whether to bawl over or burst with pride over. Anything homemade helps to make life feel a little less strange after a strange entry into the world. Normally we are so happy at a birth, we were so scared and so sad. Thank you to anyone who provides little things to the NICU. ;o) I sure appreciated it. (Call your NICU and see what they need.) There are many other good charities to give to also. I love to make newborn booties for LDS humanitarian aid.

Debbie, what a wonderful gift for preemies & experience for your son. Somehow I missed this the first time through, but it's a wonderful, worthwhile cause.
