Embracing the ICU 

 

Embracing the ICU is a 501c3 nonprofit. They are a team of parents that have walked the journey and continue to do so.  Whether it's been for weeks, months or for some years in the ICU (NICU/PICU/CICU).  They understand the stories, the strains, the sorrow, and strength these parents have; and are there to bring support in areas that they felt were missed in their journeys.  They have a 4 pronged mission: Holiday's at the Hospital, Possible Bags, Parent to Parent, and Tribe Vibe.

We will be helping Embracing the ICU with one aspect of their "Possible Bags". They have asked Crafting Change to help make a little soft, cotton Octopus to put in each bag for the babies in the ICU. 

 

Robyn Peters has drafted our approved pattern and with our Project Overview Sheet this gives you all the guidelines you need to craft a safe Octopus for the NICU. Our Crafting Change guidelines for yarn choices and our tips and tricks for completing this project are all listed on the Project Overview Sheet, be sure to read this first before beginning to craft this project to ensure your final product is up to the standards needed for these items that will go into an incubator. 

This project is not for beginning crocheters. 

Please only use the yarns on the Project Overview Sheet that Robyn has approved. If you feel strongly about a yarn not on our list, please email Robyn for approval. Robyn@craftingchange.org. We are always open to suggestions and expanding the list, but there may be a reason your favorite yarn was excluded. 

 There is only one approved pattern for this project, please only use this one pattern.
