I found a sweet pattern for a baby burial bunting that I got actual loss mama recommendation for. It's the Knitted Burial Bunting pattern and one of the moms in HAPL on Ravelry said she got one for her daughter. She said it was just right. I'm taking that recommendation to the bank and am making a bunch of them.

First one is meant for Rochester Methodist Hospital in Rochester, whenever I get there again.

Second and third ones are for Matthew's Gift (link goes to a previous blog post that I did about them, which contains pertinent links).

I'm working on a Knitted Burial Bunting. Adorable little thing! I made one that I plan to take to Rochester at some point, and now some for M'sG.

If you have the heart for it, please check out Matthew's Gift and contribute what you can. <3
