I haven't read the other responses, but here's my thinking on the idea.
When Rivi died, we were given a memorial box. In it was a hand-crocheted blanket and various other things (a candle, a little prayer card, etc.). We wrapped him in the blanket while we were spending time with him after he passed.
I later made a nice memorial box of our own, decorated with little things that reminded me of our pregnancy. That blanket sits right on top of everything else in the box. It is still very comforting to me, on my hard days, to take out that blanket and snuggle it....it once held him, after all. If my house were ever to burn down and I had time to grab one thing, it would be that blanket.
I know that such blankets have blessed many mothers along the way.
