The joy of holding a new baby is like no other. The sorrow of a dear baby dying in childbirth or before is beyond my words or comprehension.
These little crochet pockets are my way of showing I care. For the parents to be able to hold their baby swaddled in a little pocket may not help the pain but at least that little one has something made with love around it as they say their final goodbyes.
Little pockets to add to my parcel for our local hospital . My goodness they are sadder to make than these little jackets full of hope.
Tiny jackets for premature babies who now have every chance of growing and becoming happy children full of fun and laughter .
If you would like to make some have a look at this lovely blog where the patterns are available for free for charity work and good causes. It's a great place where people show what they are making for these tiny ones.
