Looking for pattern testers…

So this summer I blogged about my preemie NICU smocks and promised a free tutorial or pattern… well life got a little hectic after that!  So I have finely gotten all the text typed up & the pattern pieces scanned… I just can’t find the pictures I had taken of the process so I need to make a few up & take quick pictures!  Anyways since I have pattern pieces I am putting everything in the file so it will end up being a .pdf file that can easily be printed off.

But I would LOVE to send out the Word file (.doc) to a few testers to sew up a few this week & maybe send me pictures?  Though flannel works best any soft 100% cotton can be used.  If you are interested in testing it please leave me a comment & let me know what you would like to test… the single layer I have pictured with a serged or bias tape edge, or a 2 layer serged, bias tape, or turned & top stitched edge.

I would LOVE to get this ready & posted on the site ASAP.  This pattern is free for personal & charity sewing only thank you.

    I am willing to test if you need more. I would like to try either one, which ever you need me to. If you have many for one and not the other, throw the “slow” one my way.

  3. Just Peachy says:

    I would love to.

  4. Tanya says:

    I would love to test it if you are still searching. I do them currently for a local hospital.

  5. Virginia says:

    I’d be willing to test, probably prefer a t&t as I don’t quite have the hang of my serger yet.

  6. Kymy says:

    I have sent you all the file :). It is just the text & I plan on formatting it a little better when I ad the pictures.

  7. Micki says:

    I just found your blog today and I would really love to test the pattern if you still need another tester. Your blog is a lot of fun!

    I would love to test this! I would love to do something charitable with my sewing machine rather than just make gifts for all my girlfriends who are pregnant. Just send me the pdf file and I’ll do it!

  9. Judy says:

    I’d be happy to test, too…if you still need people.

    hi! i am a new sewer and i would love to test out one of your patterns! the single layer would be better for me i think! i have 4 pregnant friends and one of them is having to have her baby delivered early because she is measuring too small. so she is due to be delivered in a few weeks, as she isnt due until the end of March.

    id be very happy to test it for you!

    I’d love to be a tester for you. A friend has a baby in the nicu at the moment, and he’s expected to stay for the next half year. I’ve been wanting to make something for them other than blankies.


  14. It’s late in the game, but if you’re still looking for testers, or if you’re planning on making the pattern public, I’d love to try it! I’m part of a new mamas group (although our babes are almost a year old – wow, not so “new” anymore) that likes to do charitable craft projects. This is a great idea for our next one!

  15. LeAnn says:

    Sign me up to test as well.

      Kymy….hope your doing well!
      I’d love to test some of these out and donate them for charitable use this summer!

    I’m not sure if you’re still accepting pattern testers but I would loooove to! I had a preemie of my own who is now a healthy 6 month old but my cousin just had a 31weeker.. I know they have a long road ahead of them in the NICU and know how great a help these would be. Thank you for your time. My fingers are crossed!

  17. Peta says:

    Hey Kymy any chance I could grab a copy of this pattern please?
    I’d like to make some to donate to my local hospital.
    When we lost our baby boy at 19 weeks, the hospital was just fantastic and I’d like to give something back to them.

    Hi~ I am a momma who lost her baby while in labor He was 40 weeks, while in labor my amniotic fluid burst and went into my blood stream, I almost dies and he did not make it. Along with it all I lost my uterus and can not bear children anymore. I have since been asked by my hospital to sew for them. They want 6-9 inch diapers and nicu gowns I also thought of sewing a few infant burial blankets to see if they like them. It is a healing ministry for my heart and remembrence of my son. If I missed the testing please let me know when your pattern is up. Thank you for sharing~

    Hello I already do some charity sewing for a NICU unit near me so I would love to do this smock you’ve designs also but I would like to ask you to send me the word document please on how you put it together…I saw the earlier posts so I’m thinking you have already had enough testers? Did they use a cotton flannel or a cotton knit and how did they finish the edges as your pattern doesn’t state if you wanted two of each piece cut out…thanks a lot, Pat , virginia beach,Va
