Our Items

 We assemble a variety of items for delivery to the area hospitals.  All items are crafted by our volunteers and are finished with a Threads of Love Label.

ALL completed packets are accompanied by a small prayer card, printed in English and Spanish, to let the recipients know of God's love for them.  Our mission is to share His love with those in need, not simply to dress babies!

Bereavement Items

We have several bereavement items we provide for families grieving the loss of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or infant death all hand crafted with the goal of providing a little comfort at a very difficult time.

Our burial gown packets specially sized for babies from 1/2 pound and smaller to full term.   They give the family the ability to dress even the littlest angel in an appropriate-sized gown for viewing and/or burial.  The packet contains a gown, blanket and hand-made bonnet or cap.

New bereavement items include the beautiful memory bracelets show here.  These bracelets feature a special 'Threads of Love' heart bead and come in a mom/baby set for a touching and lasting remembrance.  The design is one of our very own volunteers and kits are available for other chapters through our national organization.  We are also making small memory pouches as well to be used to protect plaster foot/hand casts or for other memory items.

Hats, Booties, Blankets and Other Yarn Crafted Items

Yarn Items

Our knitters and crocheters are always busy at work producing a variety of items in all sizes and colors.  Each of our garment packets contains a hand-crafted hat.  We also provide loose hats with a hang-tag prayer card.   Blankes are always needed, in sizes 14" square all the way up to afghan sizes.  Any patterns are acceptable, and we have guidelines and patterns for the 'preemie' sized hats and botties.  Use the "Contact" form to request a pattern book, or visit the "Links" page for websites that offer free knit and crochet patterns. 

Snugglies

The 'Snuggly' is a hooded pad that is made from flannel and quilted for softness and warmth.  It is used to swaddle the infant to provide a feeling of security.  The straps can also be used to restrain little arms that pull on the tubing and wires that are often needed for the NICU babies.  Snugglies are easy and quick to make up and are always a favorite item with the NICU nurses.

Lovie Dolls  **Great for group projects!

Lovie Dolls

NOTE:  At this time we are no longer accepting Lovie Dolls as we do not have a hospital that will take them.  If that changes we will update the website!  Lovie dolls are soft sock dolls with the purpose of beginning the bonding process between Mom, Dad and baby.  Parents hold the doll close and transfer their scent to it.  When the doll is placed in the isolette, the baby can feel a connection to their parents, even when they are not physically present.  Lovie Dolls make a great community service project.  Let us know if we can help you host a 'doll party' for your civic group, church group or classroom.  Lovie dolls can be made by folks anywhere from 3 to 103!

Guardian Angel Dolls

Guardian Angel

 Made from soft flannel, these precious blanket dolls are similar to our Lovie Dolls and may be used in the same manner to promote early bonding and comfort.  They have been 'approved' by baby Jaylee (at left) as great for holding and hugging!  The blanket dolls are very easy and great for beginner sewers.  We also have a crocheted version of the angel doll.

Isolette Covers

Our isolette covers are used to provide darkness and solitude for the babies in the NICU.  The darkness and quiet encourage deep sleep which helps the babies to grow and heal.  Some are made with a solid color backing for babies born addicted to drugs who may be experiencing the symptoms of withdrawal and are extra sensitive to light and noise.  The bright printed top side helps bring color into the NICU to cheer staff and parents.  The covers are especially sized to fit the isolettes and have button-up flaps to ensure easy access into the isolette for staff, or to let in more light when needed.  Isolette covers are a great project for quilters!

Taggies and Other Blankets

Taggies

"Taggies" are blankets made with ribbons sewn in around the edges.  When the babies get big enough, they love to spend some 'tummy time' on these blankets, grabbing for the ribbon loops.  It's great exercise for them and the blankets are so cute too.  We also make other blankets which are given to the families to take home.  Any type of blanket is welcomed - knit, crocheted, quilted, etc as long as it is hand made.  The general size is anywhere from 14" square for a small receiving blanket to 50X40 for the larger blankets that can be used over the isolette.
