Oasis of Hope

These two Bereavement Gowns (micro preemie and preemie size) & bonnets are for the All Crafts for Charity project for the month of May. I used this pattern. Layettes will be prepared from the items donated and then presented to the Oasis of Hope - Babyland Shelby County Medical Center. You can read about the Center and the Oasis of Hope program here.

I also made a preemie blanket for the project.

  3. How sweet you are, Nancy. And there is such a need for this. I lost a preemie daughter myself in 1974. It would have helped my healing so much if there had been someone who had handed me a dress and bonnet for her.But women then were not encouraged to grieve their babies, at least where I lived.
