I have a friend who recently had twin daughters 2 months early. They each weighed a little over 2 pounds at birth. She had a shower and received many things for full-term girls, but I wanted to do something for her babies while they were in the NICU.
I found this tutorial. and decided that this might be just the thing. I made a set, but decided that if she liked them, I would make more. She let me know that they were great!
I cut out several sets.
Then I started to sew.
I looked at the smocks and decided I needed to do something to make them more girly. I knew that I couldn't sew on lace or the like, because it could damage the babies' delicate skin. I decided to use the velcro that was already a part of the smock's design and I made these...
This is how they look on the smocks.
I think they turned out well. What do you think?
