Places to get free patterns
Bev's Country Cottage has hundreds of patterens for gowns, wraps, blankets, hats, in a variety of styles and difficulty levels. They also have a link to hospitals in need to of items.
Carewear.org has patterns for clothes, bears, hats, blankets, wraps, and other medically related patterns.
This patteren is from carewear.org and is the basis for my girls gown with some slight modifications and also the basis for my boys romper with some more involved modifications
I am also willing to share my own patterns via email. They are pretty rough but when used in connection with the better patterens and directions found on these websites, should be usable.
I have also received patterens from other organizations that I have permission to share via email.
