I think this is going to be my new favorite shower gift. It’s homemade, but it doesn’t take me as long as a blanket, and it’s nice because sometimes there are a million blankets at a shower. I want to be able to give something that the new mom wants, but maybe her own hospital gown is something she doesn’t even know she wants. This is the third one I’ve made, and I think they’re getting better (sorry to the recipients of the first 2!). I can’t remember where exactly I found the pattern, but it was online somewhere. There is an old McCall’s pattern, I think, but you have to be on our toes to win it off of Ebay. This pattern was free. The lady makes hospital gowns for sick people. How nice is that. Her only rule is that you can’t sell the gowns. I’m all for that, because once you start charging, everyone expects your seams to be straight! So, I’m all for everyone making homemade hospital gowns … unless we’re going to th same shower!
p.s. There’s a giveaway for a Le Creuset pan over at Bloom today. If you don’t already know, Bloom is my cousin’s awesome site about all things wonderful.
