January 2020: Development hearts for Tiny Sparks WA

Date Posted:1 January 2020 


Tiny Sparks WA is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers with the mission to improve the health and well being of Western Australian families enduring high-risk pregnancy, infants requiring neonatal unit care and associated childhood impacts. Every year many families experience the highs and lows of sick full term babies, premature infants, loss and the ongoing developmental and medical needs of a child who begins their life in the neonatal unit.
The volunteers at Tiny Sparks WA work tirelessly to raise awareness and provide support and guidance. We would like to get involved and support this charity by sewing developmental hearts. These hearts are provided to families with infants who have been admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The fabric heart is worn against the mother's skin to absorb her scent. The heart is then placed with the baby so the mother is always with her child.

Sewalongs are a great way to get inspired by what everyone creates, while giving to a worthy cause. If you’re new to sewing or embroidering this is a great chance to get involved and have fun no matter what the outcome. Any excuse to put your sewing and embroidery machines to good use is a great one.


The charity has been wonderful in providing instructions for you to follow to create these development hearts. Download the PDF to get started →

Echidna project material/ fabric requirements are an indication only and can seem to be generous. This has been intentional. Should you make a cutting or embroidery mistake you will have sufficient fabric to rectify your error.
