Fabric Angel Wraps

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This sewing pattern for an "Angel's Wrap" can be made any suitable size.

Small ones from 6" square can be used on the gynaecology wards for very early losses. Larger squares 10"-12" can be used by the Delivery Wards.

You will need 3 squares of material for each pocket.

 

This sample is made from 3x10" squares. Use any suitable lightweight material e.g. fine soft cotton, towelling, satin or fleece.

Pale colours, preferably white, ivory, soft lemon or greens - we want to keep them neutral so they can be used for either gender. Please make in matching pairs so that one can be used for baby and the other kept by the parents as a keepsake. Thank you.

Press ALL pieces before sewing

From the material, (or a mixture of matching materials), cut out three 10" squares.

Fold one square in half diagonally, to form a triangle
Along the LONG side of the triangle, stitch eyelet lace. Or make eyelet holes.

Attach ribbon at each end and thread through holes, meeting in the centre.

Leave enough ribbon at centre to form a bow.

Stitch triangle to corner and sides of one 10" square.

Stitch lace all around the square, flatten to inside.

Putting RIGHT SIDES TOGETHER attach the other 10" square leaving a gap 2"-3" long on one side where the pocket is joined.

Put fingers into gap and pull all the square through the gap, so that right side is now facing.

Turn in material of gap slightly and seal.

Top stitch all the way round.
If you have an over locker (Serger) you can layer the pieces right side out in the correct order and over lock (serge) round.

Then attach lace.

You should now be able to pull up into a little pocket.

 

 

Here are a few more pictures of towelling lined soft fabric angel wraps that are made slightly differently - I hope this gives enough of an idea so you could have a go!  The colours need to be more neutral, less pink and blue, but it gives you an idea. Please do email me if you have any questions, I am very happy to help. enquiries@tigerlilytrust.co.uk

October 15th International Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness Day + Global Wave of Light
We are very grateful to Scott and Claire for their generous hospitality in hosting us for our annual Remembrance Celebration. We invite you to join us for a very special evening remembering and celebrating all our babies and children gone to soon.
On this special date, we will light candles and be part of the global wave of light around the world. It will be an evening of remembering and honouring our babies, sharing and connecting with those who have travelled this path and those who help us to travel it. 
If you would like to come along, please join our event on Facebook - to help us prepare for accommodating you.


Doors open 6pm please come early to allow time for candle lighting and putting an angel on our remembrance tree in memory of your baby or child. 
There will be tea and coffee afterwards and time to talk and connect with each other.
We hope to see you there, message or email Val with any questions you may have, I will do my best to answer - enquiries@tigerlilytrust.co.uk

We understand that some of you may wish to join us for the Remembrance Celebration but be unable to attend - with this in mind we would like to offer you a way to include your precious babies too. If you send us their name in an email we will honour them by lighting a candle for them and speaking their name with all our babies during the ceremony.
United we honour our precious ones, together we help each other to heal.
Love and blessings, Val x x x
