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 traise 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.

MATERIALS NEEDED

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

      Hi Nancy, Thank you for your comment, it is great to see you want to get involved! We are based in Australia so it may be a little difficult for you to send these. We suggest looking for somewhere more local who will accept these. The developmental hearts donated here will be going to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit so maybe you could ask your local hospital if this is something they would accept.

      Good luck and thank you for donating your time to sewing for a great cause!
