Lay Me Down Wrap

What makes THIS wrap special?
It's the idea that especially smaller babies tend to be fragile. Little arms and little heads can be tough to get through or into things. So why not have an outfit you don't NEED to do that with? Something that the baby can be laid down in and the outfit if brought in around them, but made to look like a tiny outfit with a neck hole and arm holes... need a visual to understand what I'm talking about? Here you go!
 Once the baby is laid down there everything else comes over top or around...they don't need to pick baby up again until the dressing is done and ready to go back to mommy's arms. Soft flannel helps to protect the baby's delicate skin.

Ready to get working on one? 

So as you can see from the examples this is a sewing project. So you will need a sewing machine, flannel, thread, and ribbon. Here's the bits and pieces of the pattern you will need :) Have fun with it... oh and they CAN be used as reversible items as well... so think about that when your choosing your lining.

HOW TO GUIDE for the staff that will be using these items (This is IMPORTANT to include with your wraps so they know exactly what they are and what to do).

These wraps are reversible if you use flannel on both sides?

I would LOVE to see other's pieces when they are done :) And if you ever receive hospital feedback on them good or bad please let me know

This is a unique pattern created by me. It's not to be sold or redistributed under a different name. Items made from it are for donation purposes. Thank you in advance for respecting my intellectual property :)


The front panels do NOT have to be cut on a fold, but you do need to cut two and having the fabric folded (wrong side together or right sides together) and cutting it out will give you the two opposite panel pieces you need.

I tend to add my ribbon after with a sharp needle and just adding two small knots on either side so it doesn't pull through on the nurses/parents when they go to dress the babies.

On the extra small wrap the ribbon goes in the corners not mid curve like on the larger wraps.
