Diapers for Arkansas -- By Milky Baby Original and Edgemont YW

We received a wonderful donation of flannels from Milky Baby Original.  Milky Baby makes beautiful baby slings, blankets, mei tei carriers, pet slings, and nursing covers.  She also sells the scraps and remnants that are left over from these projects.  It was a generous batch of these scraps and remnants that came our way.

You say "scraps and remnants".  We say "diapers for itty bitty angel babies."  We can make use of anything that is bigger than about 7 inches square.  A little bit of fabric goes a nice, long way.  (Did you know that we can make 14+ diapers out of just one yard of flannel??)

We were able to transform the flannel from Milky Baby Original into 100 diapers for University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock, Arkansas in honor of the Hardin Family.

Little diapers for Little Rock.

With the gorgeous fabrics from Milky Baby Original, we made 50 tiny diapers....

 Oh, the owls... the cuteness of the owls...
And 50 "large" diapers.

We also donated these 36 additional diapers for the angel families at UAMS.
How did we make these 136 diapers?

The Young Women from the Edgemont Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints took these diapers to their Girls Camp for a service project.  Their fearless camp leader (our very own Vanessa) pre-sewed the first stitch and then these lovely girls trimmed and flipped the entire batch during their camping experience. THANK YOU, young Diaper Divas!
And THANK YOU, Milky Baby Original!  Your efforts will help to bless the journeys of 68 grieving families who will deeply appreciate what you have done on their behalf.
