We are a UK-based non-profit-making group that knits and crochets clothing and blankets for stillborn babies. We supply many hospitals in the UK, free of charge, and hope that what we do makes the saddest of times just that bit more bearable for newly bereaved parents.
To find our contact details or suitable patterns please click on the page links at the top-right of this page then scroll down below the picture of the tiny teds to see them.
One of the best ways to find out more is to join our Yahoo group, which is a vibrant and friendly group where our members chat, share ideas and support each other. You can also access more patterns via the Yahoo group:
Paula has kindly updated our Tiny Ted pattern to make the finished teds even more adorable. Please check out the two patterns on our pattern page. One of the teds is knitted from the feet up and the other is knitted sideways starting with the arms. Both patterns will result in Tiny Teds measuring only 2- 3″ tall if made with 2ply / 3ply wool.

I would just like to wish all our members and supporters a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The hospitals we supply are currently mainly asking for gowns, sleepsuits and sleeping bags / cuddlers in neutral colours, e.g. white, cream, pale yellow, pale green.
We are currently running short of bigger knitted or crocheted blankets, measuring 20-22″ square or bigger, again in neutral colours.
We also have a shortage of gowns in white, cream or pale yellow, measuring anywhere between 8″ and 14″ from neck to bottom of hem. These are best made with 4ply wool (acrylic) as clothing that is made with thicker DK can be too overwhelming for these tiny babies.
