Do you happen to know what an isolette is?
Well I don’t either.
About a week ago I received an email from my friend Laura asking if I was interested in helping with some charity sewing. Immediately thoughts race back to my little “stop me before i volunteer again” button but I’m a true believer that the only way to happiness is to do something you love in the service of others (thanks Covey!). So I said sure, what the heck.
Well the next day I received a phone call from the AT&T Pioneers group and I told the coordinator to send whatever she needed over and I’d work on getting it done. Just one at a time. These isolette covers were something of great importance and they need about 28. I ticked off one. BTW, the isolette is the little incubator that a preemie baby stays in when they are in the NICU. The cover helps muffle the noises and keeps out the glaring light. Gives them a little cocoon to help them grow!
Here’s the finished product – albeit over some of my storage containers. My two thoughts were first wondered why they don’t have velcro on the front but I suppose this is the way it’s supposed to be and secondly I wondered why they chose to cut the fabric out in such odd patterning. I’m sure there are reasons. Hopefully someday I’ll see a photo of it actually in use at the hospital. I’m sure I’ll be making more.
