Engaging children in needlework is a great way to keep them from being bored and occupy them for hours! It’s very cheap too, especially when comparing it to other activities which they may enjoy. Young children or teens won’t be able to work as fast and therefore one project will keep them busy for a while, thus saving you money.
Another very practical item to invest is a chart keeper, which is tool that can be used to keep and display patterns and charts, all whilst working on a particular project. The chart keeper can be opened out and stood up to place patterns in for easy reference when working on a project, and then folded up and stored away when not in use.
Bliss also use Knitted breasts. The knitted breasts allow nurses to easily demonstrate to women important massage techniques that let them stimulate their milk production and express their valuable first drops of milk. They are particularly helpful when there are language barriers. Woollen breasts are a brilliant free alternative to expensive teaching aids that are used by health professionals to educate new mothers to express by hand before going on to use an electric pump.
Size: Don’t put too much importance on trying to perfect the size of a preemie item of clothing. There is a great difference between premature baby sizes and so an item of any size should be suitable for at least one baby. As a general guide premature babies head circumference is roughly the same as their chest circumference. The average premature babies chest measurements are 8”-14”. However clothes of all sizes are needed for preemies, so no matter how big or small your item is it will most likely fit at least one baby.
Knitting has always been not only a fun hobby, but a very useful one as well. Through the years knitters have enjoyed creating all sorts of projects; everything from sweaters and afghans to knitted rugs and toys.
