Another Gift

Here is another lot of gowns put together as another gift. A fellow Miracle Babies Mum approached me for some gowns for a friend of hers. So here they are, i think the Christmas spirit is taking hold because the number of gowns is slowly increasing LOL

A gift for Indiana

Little Indy arrived in a hurry at just 28 weeks. I have had a wonderful time with lots of new girly prints, sewing up all these little gowns for Miss Indiana.

Another delivery

Today the hospital held a thank you morning tea for all their volunteer knitters and sewers. It was wonderful to see that there are so many volunteers, donating their time for such a wonderful and precious cause. Although on the other hand it makes me sad to think that there are other hospitals and NICU/SCN's out there who have no volunteers or just a handful.

If only i knew which hospitals truly did need the extra assistance that volunteers bring, the extra happiness that dressing a sick or tiny baby in clothes can bring...i would be only too happy to dedicate time in making some of these little gifts for them as well.

There are the gowns i delivered to the NICU today

Time to get to work

It is truly, well and truly time that i now need to buckle down and get stuck into these Christmas Gowns. Otherwise they are going to be stored away until next Christmas.

So if you see me around the forums/facebook/loops, tell me off and send me back to my gowns!!! I have no idea how many i should or need to make so i am probably going way overboard but i guess it is better to have far too many than not enough, and well there are enough NICU's around the country that i am sure each and everyone one of them will go to a loving and very thankful home.

Now back to the sewing.....

A gift for Maxx

Little Maxx was born too soon at 25 weeks gestation. He is such a strong little boy, his Mum and Dad are also super strong!

These have been shipped out to his Mum today :-)

I wasn't too sure about including a Christmas one, i don't want it to seem like i think he will still be in hospital for Christmas. But on the chance that he is, he has a lovely festive gown all of his own and if he is home with his family then i am sure his Mum will be able to donate it to the NICU that has cared for her little boy.

Gowns around Australia

These are way overdue in being sent out but better late than never right.

These gowns are being sent to a NICU in Victoria

These ones are going to a NICU in South Australia

And these are going to a NICU in the ACT

Just a few to make sure they work for these NICU's as i am not 100% sure on the designs that they may use there. I am sure these bright little numbers will bring smiles to many NICU Mums and Dads

New Prints

I have just completed some gowns from some new prints i have. Well not entirely new as i have had the fabric for a little while but new as in just finished.

Now that i have lost my sewing area i am actually getting all the snaps sewn on rather than the easy task of sewing the gowns together!!!

More Christmas

With DH actually having a lighter week at work this week i have managed to get a little bit of sewing done. Not much but anything is better than nothing right.

So with it being only 7 weeks til Christmas i thought i would get stuck in and get some more Christmas gowns done.

Gowns for Archer

Another little premmie, a little boy who was born at 24 weeks. I've been a bit slack in getting these ones out but they are jetsetting their way to his Mum as i type this.

It's begining to look like Christmas

Christmas gown number one is finished. I am just hoping i haven't left my run on the Christmas gowns too late but then it is only October....

I hope that some of these gowns will bring something special to Mums and Dads who will have sick and premature baby's in hospital on Christmas Day.

New Fabrics

These are some of my very cute new fabrics i have sitting here waiting to be cut up and made into gowns.

All is on hold ATM, school holidays and Mummy time just do not go together. Although it is all quiet here right now so hopefully tonight i will get some more cut out because the sewing them up is the easy bit!

Gone Overboard


According to the man around the house i have far too many gowns sitting around. With it being school holidays they probably wont be getting finished in a hurry. Plus now Ethan is quite unwell with a perforated ear drum (poor little guy!) So of course there are lots of cuddles happening right now, he has learnt how to lap it all up very well i might add!

Anyway, i scored a heap of gorgeous fabrics recently for a bargain price. So i hope tonight while watching TV to get them all cut up...although i still need to get inner fabric too. Ahh the story of my life, need more need more LOL

This is the current pile living on the ironing board

And this is the small person who sits at my feet while i am at the ironing board LOL

Turtles for Jack

Jack has pestered and pestered me for some turtles. Came across some rather funky turtle fabric which Jack absolutely loved!!!

Not too sure if i like the shirt or not but Jack thinks it rocks so that is all that matters right!
