What a wonderful idea! I just found this pattern for a hospital gown, in either adult or children's sizes, at Lazy Girl's blog. It is downloadable and prints out on 10 8 1/2" x 11" sheets of paper. Can you imagine all the gorgeous and colorful hospitals gowns that are waiting to be made? Seriously, having been in the hospital recently, I can tell you how much it would brighten someone's day to actually have a PRETTY hospital gown!

How about this fabric called Urban Garden?


or this one....Memories by Art Quilt Gallery...


or this more subtle one by Girlfriends, Meagan in Seafoam...

Hi Quilternity!

Thank you for letting your readers know about our free hospital gown patterns. It’s a very dear project to me and I appreciate your help in making people aware that it is available.

When making a gown for a loved one, consider making a simple shawl or wrap as a simple cover-up, or a lap sized throw when extra warmth is needed.

My best,
