Blankets of Love

I'm not sure how I stumbled upon the BLaNKEtS of Love site but I am glad I did because it allows me to do some small bits of sewing, limited only by my imagination, that will then be of benefit to others.
Blankets of love are used to wrap little ones in. Whether stillborn or having passed away from different causes, the parents wrap their baby in these blankets to say their goodbyes. Then they keep them. ....the parents can smell the baby on the blanket and it offers them some comfort.

Please check out the blog for more information
The blankets are not difficult to make and should be no more than 60cm or possible smaller for the tiniest little ones.


Cheerio!

  1. Great cause! We have people donate these where I work and it is so nice to be able to give the parents something beautiful when they are grieving. The parents are so grateful too.
