Sewing For Breast Cancer patients

It has been a couple of years, since we have made the Breast Cancer Drain Bags, but the call came though that more was needed, which is really a shame however I was glad to get sewing again for this great cause.

I have finished off 12 bags already and decided this year that a little gift card would be nice popped into the bag for the recipient.  Card making is high on my list of little craft projects at the moment, so it was a good opportunity to make some on a smaller scale.  I loved how they turned out.

The bags have a variety of fabric themes, so hopefully they will cater to all tastes.

My friend, who does all the organising for the pickup and delivery of these bags has also made over 50 little seat belt pads for the breast cancer patients.  I think it would be a great idea to include one in every future bag I make, so I will take a photo of the next one I make.  This little pad just sits between the seat belt and the breast and can be used if you are either the driver or passenger to provide comfort.
Until next time
