Bonding Hearts

This Month's Organization:

The Mighty Miracles Foundation supports the families of newborns with special health needs receiving treatment in neonatal intensive care units.


Bonding hearts are worn by a parent, then placed in their baby's bed in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This helps comfort babies with the scent of their family, and creates a connection even when parents can't be with their child.

Create a bonding heart following one of the four patterns available on the Mighty Miracles Foundation website (under "NICU Patterns").

Knit or crocheted hearts should be stitched tightly and no more than 4–5 inches in total size.

Sewn hearts are flatter, and can be up to 7 inches in size. The best fabric to use is a soft flannel.

Project Type:

Crochet, knitting, or sewing.

Supplies You'll Need:

Supplies used will vary based on your chosen pattern.


Drop your finished project off by June 30, 2020, during regular hours at any Greene County Public Library location.

To protect your donated bonding heart during delivery, please place it in a clean plastic zipper bag.
