If you're looking for something quick to sew today, how about making some little coverlets for tiny babies in the NICU of your local hospital? These are simple little coverlets for the youngest and most vulnerable of babies.
They can be sewn up quite quickly - especially if you prepare in advance and then chain piece. Choose bright and happy novelty fabrics for the simple coverlet top.
They're then backed in 100% cotton flannelette. No batting is required (just the 2 layers) and sizes are generally between 18” to 24”. Different hospitals have different preferences, so contact your local hospital for their specific requirements.
