We are looking for people to knit or crochet blankets to comfort bereaved parents and family members.
All blankets should be made with white yarn or pale pastel which is machine washable and preferably able to be tumble dried. Yarn weight and fabric type are unimportant.
Quilts should be made from gentle pastel, white, or white on white fabric only. Quilt tops may be pieced or plain and backings can be flannelette sheeting, fleece fabric, muslin or patchwork quilt. You do not need to include wadding in the quilts, but if you do, it should be thin (sheeting or fine wadding). We also attach a spare square as a keepsake for the family.
Please make sure that all materials used are machine washable.
Suggested Blanket and Quilt sizes:
Baby: 30” x 30” / 75cm x 75cm
Toddler: 30” x 45” / 75cm x 100cm
Child: 45” x 60” / 1m x 1.25m
Teen / Young Adult: 60” x 72” / 1.25m x 1.75m
Your blanket or quilt does not need to fall exactly on these sizes: they are merely a guide to help you.
