Jen’s Friends Mastectomy Pillow https://www.facebook.com/Jensfriendsmastectomypillow/photos_stream
A few months back I came across Jen’s Friends who are a group of friends that started a drive for people to make heart shape cushions to help women and men after a mastectomy. They have a pattern that can be downloaded and would like people who can to sew the cushions together as instructed on the download. Cushions can be sent without stuffing if postage costs are an issue. They prefer 100% cotton fabric to be used. If you have spare fabric, ribbons etc. than they may be able to make use of them. If you know someone who may benefit from using one of these pillows please also get in touch with them. They can be contacted through Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Jensfriendsmastectomypillow/
It is a wonderful thing these group of women are doing and it would be great if we could get more people to take part. To Craft a Heart would be a wonderful thing!
I promised months back to post their link and send in some stitched hearts that I would make myself but I was unable to do so till now as I have had a bad succession of flares that have meant I have been confined to bed for most of my time and unable to sit at my sewing machine. I feel incredibly disappointed in myself that I have yet to fulfil what I intended to do months back but I have ten pairs of hearts cut-out and pinned to make 10 cushions so that when I am able to sew again at the machine I can be up and running in no time. I am increasing my activity levels day by day, little by little so I hope it won’t be too long before I am back at my machine – I so miss it! So apologies Jen’s Friends.
