I stumbled on a quick way to modify newborn patterns in PDF format to fit 2.5 to 4.5 pound babies. View the pattern at 75% size in PDF viewer. Take a screen shot (Hold down ALT key and and press the PrtScrn key for Windows systems). Open any imaging software program and paste the screen shot and then print from the photo imagining program. The result is a scaled-down for a small preemie pattern.
NICU Micro Preemie Open Shoulder Blue Check Gown - Our friends Jesse and Courtney gave us two gowns just like this for Kevin. It was one of the most thoughtful gifts we received since regular preemie clothes were so big they just made me cry. Kevin was swimming even in the micro-preemie gowns.
Our eldest is a NICU grad and I remember being so upset by how difficult it was to find suitable soft clothing for him before he was big enough to come home. I love this project and can't wait to get started once I've contact our local NICUs.
