Current needs

I just sent my very last sleeper sack off today in the mail to a family waiting for a teeny little triploidy angel to be born.  I have loved the ones I've used so far.  They fill an important gap size-wise that I previously didn't have.  The sewn gowns work great for babies that are about 1-1 1/2 pounds up to 3 pounds for the small size and 3 pounds up to about 6 -7 pounds for the bigger size.  But most of the little 20 weeker peanuts that I go take photos of are less than a pound.  Far less, even.  I recently did a session for a baby weighing less than 3 ounces.  It is a beautiful thing to pull out a little sleeper sack that is just the right size in such situations.

So, if you're looking for something to keep you busy in the days between Christmas and New Year's when things slow down, pull out a crochet hook or set of knitting needles and set to work!  I have a few small girl dresses, but not a ton, so I'd appreciate those as well.  Same with small stretchy hats that would fit over a plum, orange, or grapefruit.


  1. Those little sleeper sacks appear to measure about 6" across by 9" long and then the hood attached. Am I sizing that correctly?

  2. These are the little nighties with buttons down the front with a separate hat. I use the hooded buntings only for babies that have such fragile skin that they can't be dressed. I find that 75% of the little peanuts can be, so I love the ones with sleeves. For more photos of them on the gridded mat for measurements, look at this post: The top three on the left are what I'm talking about.
