The purpose of the iCare sewing patterns program is to provide custom-sized sewing patterns for hospital gowns, pajamas, and accessories for medical care. This program is provided free of charge to anyone who wishes to sew garments for non-profit and charitable purposes. We have developed this program in collaboration with the American Sewing Guild in support of their 2007 service project to sew medical care garments for young burn victims at the Shriners Childrens Hospitals. iCare is now available as a free download on our website http://www.wildginger.com/icare/.

We heard at our Grand Rapids MI ASG meeting on Tuesday that a hospital gown pattern would be available. Did not hear the part about it being a Wild Ginger Product. Perhaps the speaker did not understand the connection.
I have forwarded the information to our Community Service Chairman. This will be such a great help for several of the projects we do.
Thanks sew much Lisa!

What a wonderful project--thank you, Lisa! I've been chairperson for doing chemo hats for my PACC group the last 2 years, and it's a tremendous help to be able to download free patterns for something like this.

Lisa--this is wonderful. I immediately downloaded and was pleased to see a decent overlap on the gown!!! I HATE gowns that gap!
The built-in size charts and ability to customize them is very cool!
If you are going to add anything, you might put in a choice for snap shoulder closing. I noticed how much these were used during my recent medical events.

What a great program. I am going to make myself some of these items to have ready for me the next time I am hospitalized. I have severe emphysema and am often hospitalized with pneumonia so this will at least be something to help my morale instead of those horrible hospital garments. Thank you. Thank you.

This is terrific, Lisa--
I've contacted Ginger's Girls, our user group, and already they've suggested a community project using the program. We'll see how it goes. Thanks!

The .pdf files for the iCare Sewing Instructions and iCare Patterns Help loaded with no problem, however, the Printing Help .pdf file will not load. What am I doing wrong?
I am a member of the American Sewing Guild in the Greater Detroit area (go Tigers!) and I plan to show your patterns to a group at my church for consideration as a community service project. Thank you for making these patterns available!

So glad I can download it off your website. I'm getting a new computer tomorrow and found all my Wild Ginger installation CD's except the iCare. I'll try and attach a photo of elder bibs I made for my parents. Sadly, Dad passed away June 30th, but meanwhile he liked his personalized clothing and floor protector.
