Thank you so much for your interest in making blankets for Covered In Love!
Covered in Love provides blankets for families who have experienced miscarriage, stillbirth and early infant loss. Each blanket is made with prayer and love to bring comfort and peace to the grieving. Each time the recipients snuggle in their blankets, we hope they feel peace and comfort as they are covered in the warmth of God’s love.
As a non-profit ministry, we rely on the help of our community to make enough blankets to support these families. Each month, we fill requests from our website to ship blankets to families who have experienced loss. Online requests have resulted in blankets being shipped to 37 states and 5 countries. Besides the blankets requested from the Covered in Love website, we also have a partnership with Rex Hospital and every mom that loses a baby at Rex, goes home with a blanket and information on our ministry. On average, Covered in Love supplies 30+ blankets a month and the number of requests each month keep growing.
Prayer blankets not only touch the lives of those who receive them, but also the lives of those who have volunteered to make them. We really appreciate you donating your time to Covered in Love.
For each blanket, you will need:
-2 yards of patterned polar fleece (please avoid light blue / light pink “baby-ish” looking fleece)
-2 yards of solid colored polar fleece
-a pair of sharp scissors
