Please join me in helping to send every baby born at Southside Hospital home in something warm and cozy. Southside Hospital is located in Bay Shore on Long Island.They deliver about 200 babies a month. Most of the families who havebabies there have nothing to bring their babies home in. That’s where we come in. My group, Bella’s Babies, provides warm, handmade items for these families.

Winter is Coming!

It's time for our annual Blanket drive. It will be getting cold here soon on Long Island so it's time to
start thinking about making warm items for the babies. I will be collecting warm things from now until December 1 and then again until February 1, 2017.

I did not receive any donations for our Fall delivery so the hospital will be out of everything by December, if they are not already. 

Here is a list of what will be needed:

Newborn Blankets
Preemie Blankets
Sweater sets
Hats
Burial Garments


Blankets can be knit, crochet or fleece. Think warm, no holey patterns.
Newborn blankets should be 30"x30" on up.

Here are some pattern links:
