Mending Hearts One Stitch at a Time

Holy Sews provides handmade infant burial clothing for families that experience the loss of their baby during gestational weeks 16-25.  These micro preemie babies are much too tiny and fragile for any other clothing that is readily available. We accomplish this by supplying hospitals and funeral homes with a stock of layettes that families can choose from. All of this is provided at absolutely no charge to the hospitals, funeral homes, or the families that they serve.

We are entirely funded by donations and all of our garments are made by volunteers.

I wanted to let you know that we were working towards adopting an 8 year old boy. Mom has a warrant out on her for drugs, dad in prison, grandma has health issues and put us in her will to have custody if something happened to her. We had planned on spending a lot of time this summer with him to make the transition smoother. He drowned Friday. My heart is so broken right now. ... See MoreSee Less

Nine years ago, on the Saturday of Memorial weekend, we buried baby Ryan's ashes on the family farm. On February 19, 2016, we returned to that same sacred place to put my sweet Mother's ashes into the ground. It used to be so lonely at that place. Now, the whole family joins me in my annual "daisy heart on the ground" ritual. I'm not the only one who leaves my heart on that beautiful Arkansas mountain. We've given the ashes and dust back to The Earth, their souls to God, but the LOVE remains with us. It is a beautiful, beautiful love. ... See MoreSee Less

Copied from our DFW Chapter's post, the following is instructions for crocheting a scalloped edge around a fleece blanket.

To make the scallop border - start with a single crochet around the entire blanket to have a base. For the scallop edge: Chain 1 and single crochet in the first stitch, Then repeat the following series until you have finished: skip 1 stitch and work 5 double crochet in the next stitch, skip 1 stitch, single crochet in the next stitch. You may need to add a couple of double crochets at the corners.
