Black and Gold

Not the usual colors for a baby, unless you are a baby at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. This hospital is supported by The Preemie Project and is located on the UI campus. To kickoff the Hawkeye football season, The Preemie Project will be donating black and gold spirit hats and booties this fall. The hat pattern I used was written by Marcia. I think it's just perfect for this project. If these colors remind you of a bumblebee, then check out Libby's creation. It's really cute!

    I love it! Thanks for the great support you give TPP. I think the parents will love the hawkeye hats and booties. They will feel the love all the way to the football stadium. (It's just across the street)
