UMC newborn mini-kits!

Good morning!
If you like making newborn hats and booties then you might want to join us in making newborn mini-kits for the babies born at the county hospital in Vegas!  This will be an ongoing project but we are hoping to have our first assembling in December 2015!

Some simple crocheted patterns are included in the links below, but you may use ANY pattern you enjoy making!

Items needed for each kit:
1 newborn hat  (
1 pair newborn booties  (
1 washcloth  ( )
2 paper diapers (If you have any newborn diapers-- even a couple from grandkids visiting etc, please send them)
1 bar of Ivory soap

All these will be place in a 1 qt sized ziplock bag. (SO WE NEED 1 QT SIZED ZIPLOCKS)

If anyone would like to make 32" blankets (fleece would work great!) these kits could be pinned to a blanket which would be even more wonderful!
These blankets would be a wonderful Eagle Scout project too!

You can find free patterns for these items on this page:
knitted cloths here:

Hoping to get a kit made up real soon, and then I can post a photo!!

Items can be mailed  (Before Dec 1st, 2015)  to:
Bev Qualheim (Crafting Angels)
PO Box 427
Logandale NV 89021-0427

Hug the ones you love!

I have fleece throws that measure 50x60, if cut in half they would make two, measuring 25x30.

Would that be OK?

You know what, I think those might work out ok too! They are a bit small but would work to lay the baby on for changing diapers and such. So, sure! Bev

I attend a weekly fiber lunch (knit & crochet afternoon) at my local library. These patterns would be amazing, to make some things for the maternity unit of my local hospital :) xo
