My heart..

“Making the decision to have a child – it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.”

Elizabeth Stone

After coming across the Wrapped in Love DIY from Delia, I decided to create my own version using a crochet heart I worked on when I was pregnant!

I vaguely remembered how to crochet a heart (don’t look too hard at the heart proportions)- here is an easy instructional if you are a beginner.

Things needed for the project:

  • A white muslin or cotton baby wrap
  • Crochet Heart
  • Thread matching the colour of your crochet heart
  • Hemline pins
  • Needle

Step 1 and 2.jpg

Step 1- Gather everything you will need to make the wrap

Step 2- Because Ava was sleeping I guesstimated how big she was for the placement of the heart. I would recommendwrapping your baby in the wrap and marking it with a pen where the heart needs to go.

step-3-and-4

Step 3- Place the heart on the wrap

Step 4- Pin the heart in place

step-5

Step 5- Stitch the heart in place with the matching thread.

When washing I would recommend placing it in a dedicates bag and washing on a gentle cycle.

A super easy tutorial which can add a beautiful touch to any plain wrap you have!
