Thank you for such an extensive list of free patterns, it has taken me ages to go through them and I have saved so many patterns to come back to and make (I think that my machine is going to be busy for a while whilst I make all the great things). There has been a bit of a baby boom in the family so have been looking for both newborn and big sister / brother gifts and so many of these could be made for both using the same material so they can match.

Pillowcases are way too big for infants unless you are going to use them the same as you would a piece of fabric.

You don't have to go to all that trouble for preemie patterns. When my niece was born I made her clothes from the Cabbage Doll patterns and they were adorable !!

Just to advise anyone who has had a premature baby. I have found a quick and easy way for making patterns. 1. Take any 0-3 months pattern and trace off the pattern on A4 paper and take to your local photo copier shop and ask them to reduce the pattern pieces by 15% so the actual size of the copy is 85%. I have found this most helpful and easier. You will find that this measures approx 10" chest. If small clothes are required just reduce the original pattern pieces say 20% so the copy size would be 80%. Hoping this will help anyone who required smaller and tiny sizes. Happy sewing.
