I created these kits to raise money for Heart Week 2021. I was thrilled to bits to raise over £700 by selling the kits and doing zoom sew alongs. It was all such a lovely experience, I have decided to keep the kits for sale and will plan some future zoom sessions. £3 from each kit will go to the three charities mentioned below.
My little boy Morgan, was born on the 1st February 2020. We found out he had a serious congenital heart defect at the 20 week scan. He had his life saving heart surgery on the 10th February.
To mark this huge date in our lives, which also happens to coincide with Heart Week, I have created some simple Heart Kits which you can make at home and join in the heart making whilst raising money for a good cause.
The kit has a selection of goodies which will allow you to make your chosen full heart design in a hoop and you will have bits left over to make a few more. The three samples are just ideas for you but I will enclose some simple instructions and stitching guides.
The kit will have the following:-
* Instruction and ideas sheet
* Heart templates
* One piece of denim
* Selection of ribbons
* Selection of buttons
* Selection of felt pieces
* Selection of threads
* 1 x hand sewing needle
* 1 x 6 inch bamboo hoop
The hoops are available to buy if you want more at £2.50 each. Add them on here.
The fantastic charities I am supporting:-
The Grand Appeal – We were supported by The Grand Appeal throughout our stay in Bristol with stress free accommodation and also many ways with Morgan’s care and recovery. The support they offer the Children’s Hospital is amazing.
Heart Heroes – This is a small but amazing charity who help families of children with heart conditions. They offer continued support to the child and the whole family in a truly unique way.
Tiny Tickers – This charity helps with the crucial detection care and treatment of babies with serious heart conditions. Training sonographers to spot defects during routine scans is something we will forever be grateful for as it allowed us to prepare for the journey ahead.
Thank you for being a part of my fundraising for these truly worthy charities. Helen x
