Newborn Christmas Stockings(Sew/Design) and Crochet/Knit Hats and Booties for Mercy Hospital

When I lived in Connecticutt, I would sew and individually design newborn Christmas stockings for Norwalk (Conn.) Health Center/Norwalk Midwives Service, then donate them. So, when I moved to Wisconsin I contacted the Mercy Hospital Volunteer Director and asked her if they had a program for them - she never heard of babies going home in an heirloom stocking.

She said, that it would be great and asked me if I would be able to do (50 stockings). Since I'm the only one working on them and every single stocking have a different design, some are basically no patterns. Stockings are all donated. The extra gift that goes inside the stocking is either pair of booties or hat.

I crochet and knit these little things(hats, booties, blankets and sweaters) using Jamie and Bundle of Love for Mercy and nowfor Norwalk Health Center; NICU (Tenderhearted Project) Milwaukee,

Thank you for your interest.
