  1. Hi Michelle, the free pattern for the micro preemies hats is in the post 🙂 You can print it using the printer button at the top of the post. Hope this helps, R

  2. If any was I can be sent the directions for the premi hats and the micro premi hats, the blankets, and the wings I am good at, but need help with the hats so I can start providing to my local hospitals, under their lil cuddles group. I have had 3 grandchildren born and each time they had to stay, the baby’s each got a blanket and cap to match from their cuddlier, please and thank you in advance

  3. I love to make preemie, micro preemie and smaller without directions. I sent a note asking if the little ones were too small. I’m eager to make your smallest angel baby.

    My daughter had a very early miscarriage, second pregnancy. They didn’t know how to refer to the baby. I suggested angel baby without knowledge of use of that term.

    She went on to have 2 more boys for a total of 3.
