My goal is to put together 10 kits in the next few weeks. I need some help from my friends to gather some of the supplies. Here is a list of the kit contents that are packed in a 2 gallon zip bag:
4 single thickness cloth diapers
4 diaper safety pins
1 pair booties or baby socks
2 bars of Ivory soap 3.5-5 ounces each
*1 receiving blanket
1 layette gown
The Humanitarian Center is very specific about some of the items in the kit. I could use your help collecting these items. Since I would like to put together 10 kits, this is what I will need:
- 40 flat-fold single thickness cloth diapers (Approximately 25" Birdseye Cloth or diaper flannel, 100% cotton.) Please, no pre-fold or disposable diapers.
40 diaper safety pins
- 10 pairs booties or baby socks (this would be a great project for a knitter or crocheter)
- 20 bars of soap 3.5-5 ounces each (Ivory or other non-allergenic brand)
10 layette gowns (Newborn to 6 months, Fabric: cotton knit.) Please, No footed sleepers, buttons, zippers or strings. This could be store-bought or, you can use the pattern here . *10 receiving blanket (36x36 – 45x45 inches) (see instructions below)This need has been filled. 10-2 gallon size heavy ziplock bags
Any help would be appreciated. Email me if you have any questions. I'll keep you posted on my blog with updated totals of what is still needed to complete the kits.
Thank you so much.
