Easter/Spring Hats and Booties for Iowa NICUs Donation Deadline

This year we are so excited to include a Spring/Easter donation to our list of special donations..  We are planning to donate Easter and spring themed hats, booties and other costume items to Iowa Neonatal Intensive Care Units this spring.  Items can be knit, crochet or sewn.  Please visit our Crafting Guidelines and Measurements Guide for information on yarn, sizes, packaging, etc.

We have pinned cute ideas on our Pinterest Page.  We are looking for flower hats, lambs, chicks, bunnies, Easter eggs and ducks. The families love hats, headbands, booties, leg warmers, diaper covers, cocoons and other costume items.

We have a few cute pattern ideas on our website pattern page

If you have any questions about sizing a pattern down for premature babies, please do not hesitate to contact us.  We have additional measurements that are not on our website that we could share with you.
