NICU-Friendly Smocks
A fabulous tutorial for making flannel smocks for the NICU.  It allows room for the various tubes/monitors but is fast and easy to remove if/when necessary.  You can use plastic snaps in place of the velcro.  (Don’t use metal snaps, as they can get hot in the incubators and burn baby’s skin.)  A download link is provided on this page to obtain the free pattern.

Infant Peasant Dress
Cute dress pattern.  If made with a satin type of fabric, it would also make a pretty burial gown.  Sized 0-3 months.
