Micro Preemie Hat



So, this is a special little hat I've been working on this morning. A customer contacted me the other day asking if I could make micro preemie hats. She said her friend was getting ready to have her baby at 25 weeks and she'd love to have a few little hats for her. I had no clue what the size of a micro preemie would be, just really teeny tiny. She said the hat should fit a small plum. Can you even imagine? This is the sample I came up with. I'm going to mail it to her today and see what adjustments I'll need to make, if any. Isn't it just precious? I don't know exactly what hats she wants to order, but I'm thinking an apple is a must, don't you ;-)

Hello everyone! I am 'the' customer, and I must agree.. it is the cutest hat ever! I didn't have a chance to check the site until today because our own little one was in the hospital with RSV. Yuck! I can't wait to get my order in - he will be the talk of the NICU! I also really appreciate the good thoughts and prayers.. I will be sure to pass them on to her. You can never have enough!
