Memories Keepsake Box

Posted on: February 25, 2009

When I saw this pattern for a keepsake box, I thought it would be a good idea for bereaved mothers to keep their mementos of their babies in it. At the hospital I used to work at, we would make booklets for the mothers. Inside the booklets we would tape pictures, a measuring tape, the baby id bracelet, foot and hand prints, and clips of the baby’s hair in it. Other items that can be place in the box could be….. a small teddy bear that the nurses could use in the pictures. A memorial beaded bracelet for the mother. A personal card from the hospital staff. It is the little things that are done for the parents that help them cope with their loss.
