Tiny Blankets Needed for Fetal or Newborn Demise Donations

There is a blog called Greyson's Gift. The mother of Greyson has organized an effort for families dealing with fetal or newborn demise. She says:

"I am looking for your help. Hospitals all across the country are in need of small, very small, baby blankets. In cases of fetal demise, babies are so tiny, even the smallest nursery blanket is much too big to wrap around their tiny bodies. I know how parents feel when they are presented with their tiny baby, for the first and last time. Having to deal with a large blanket that doesn't fit, is a distraction. And, unnecessary. If you can sew or crotchet/knit, would you please help me to supply blankets for these mothers?"

What they need:
12" x 12" and 24" x 24" flannel receiving blankets, in small pink, baby blue, white, and yellow prints. Use your best judgement, we don't want the prints of the blankets to detract from very small babies.

The blankets also need to be double layered.

Where to send:

Continued good luck to you, Meryntha, on your quest to keep Greyson's memory alive with this noble cause.
