I got word today that a tiny preemie was just born at Camp Lejeune. I don't have any preemie sized pieces to send for Marine Corps Kids, so I decided to make a quick set.
Using my Edgerydoo and my Abra Kadabra Jacket design, I make this little jacket and crocheted a matching hat. The jacket isn't tiny, but I scaled it down to fit a newborn. It's 12" across (sleeve to sleeve) and 8" from shoulder to hem. Probably too big for him right now, but he should fit into it soon.
I followed the basic pattern that I posted earlier, added a crocheted collar and sewed on a button and loop.
This is a really fast a simple way to make charity patterns.
This one will be in the mail this weekend.
