Humidicrib covers

I was shopping in spotlight for more fabric and overheard a lady saying that she just had a new grandson born. It was prem and was in a humidicrib in the local hospital. She was buying some fabric to make a cover as the hospital only had 2 girl ones left. Obviously this didn't suit.

We can't have our local hospital running out of HUMIDICRIB COVERS.
These measure 24" * 30". 
They sit over the top of the cribs and block out some of the light. We make simple designs or just one fabric, which is what I have done.  We either use flannelette on one side and these just get bagged or if you use just cottons, put wadding in and quilt and bind them.

Our charity sewing this month is these covers and so far we have managed about 30.

This is my pile I managed to get sewn. I also donated fabric cut to size for about another 15 backings.

They have been well received at the hospital.

You are very generous, Jo: with your time, sewing those covers with love and gifting extra cut out fabric. The staff at the hospital must have been delighted.

That is really nice of you. I know they appreciate it. I have never heard of humidicrib covers. Interesting.

What a lovely thing to do. And they will be much appreciated by staff and family at the hospital.
