1) Lapghans for Veterans -Our goal is that every Veteran entering Hospice receives a quilt! 

  • Red, white and blue fabric and yarn ~ Patriotic colors, Army/Navy/Marines/Air Force fabric.

  • Please no glitter or sparkles in your yarn or fabric. 

  • sewn, knit and crochet (not taking no-sew)

  • Approximate Lapghan size 36x48"; perfect for folks resting in bed or sitting in a chair.

  • All styles such as Quilts, rag quilts, fleece/flannel/cotton blankets as well as knit/crochet. 

  • Also consider making our special Wheelchair Warmer blanket.  🇺🇸 🇺🇸​ 

2) Wheelchair Warmer Blanket -  Made from fleece and quilting cotton blanket with a kangaroo pocket has cut outs at the bottom to prevent it from getting caught in the wheels. 

 

3) Dignity Covers & Scarves - These are worn so patients can eat and keep their clothes clean yet not feel as if they are wearing a bib. 

  • 2 patterns has been requested: Dignity Scarf and Dignity Cover from Upcycled Shirt (flannel or otherwise)

  • For all genders. 🇺🇸 🇺🇸​ 

3) Twiddle Muffs -knit/crochet Twiddle muffs are wonderful at providing a comforting sensory experience. Patients will redirect their fidgeting to the muff.  🇺🇸 🇺🇸​ 

4) Fiddle Mats - Sew up these items to help occupy the restless hands and offer comfort to patients. This is an extremely detailed project, please ensure you read our project guidelines thoroughly before beginning, only mats following our guidelines accepted. 

6) Wheelchair Shawl - This easy to knit or crochet shawl helps take the chill off of someone as they sit in a wheelchair. It is perfectly shaped to stay on the shoulders. 

🇺🇸 Items for Veterans- the above items with a flag can be made in fabrics/yarns/colors for Veterans, but don't have to be, as this nonprofit has many patients who are Veterans. When you tally your item, you can indicate on the tally sheet that it is an item for a Veteran so we can keep track of how many Veteran themed items they have received. Thank you.
