If you or a family member have spent any time in the Medical Industial Complex, you'll know what I'm talking about. Some nice nurse hands you a drab, limp, depressing hospital gown and draws the curtain. I've done my time at our local hospital, in fact, I have another MRI scheduled for later this month. But it never occurred to me (shame on me!) to make my own hospital gowns. This morning I was reading the Lazy Girl Designs Blog, and she told of how she made some gowns for her father, who has been ill.
She even linked to a free pattern to make our own hospital gown. Wouldn't this be a thoughtful gift for a sick friend? I am making one for myself, so I don't have to wear those horrible depressing things in the MRI area. Something cheerful, like this. Or maybe this.
It can be as goofy or silly as I like, because it's a hospital gown, for pete's sake.
Any cute cotton will do. I feel cheered up just thinking about making my own.
Amything that helps make a sick person feel better is a wonderful thing.
Thank you, Joan.
