A great big thanks to PAT from Scrapatches and to Mdm Samm of Sew We Quilt and Sew We Stitch as well for including me in this hop. We all know someone battling Cancer... this hop is for all of THEM...
My mother was diagnosed and treated for early stage breast cancer last year so I am well aware of the heartache, struggle, courage and bravery involved in this fight. Thankfully, my mom did well with her surgery and treatment and is continuing to do well now. I pray for that outcome for everyone faced with this disease.
My project utilizing Mdm Samm's sweet bra applique pattern is a tote bag / book bag. The pattern can be found here:
The "We Support You" Friendship Quilt Pattern is available
for purchase for $12.00 by emailing Madame Samm directlyUsing my new learned skill from our last hop, box pleats and a re-purposed ribbon or two I made a small version of the bra.
And added it to some sturdy duck cloth folded and sewn into a tote bag with wooden handles.
Sorry for the awful sewing room photos, the weather has not cooperated and allowed me better outdoor options.
Now, for a chuckle...
my 14 year old son walked into the sewing room and found this "bra bag" and asked me "What are you going to do with this? Are you going to *gasp* carry it in public?"
(translation: anywhere where I am or my friends might see)
I told him straight-faced that I thought it would make a great bag for his track shoes...ha! He does not think his mother funny...hmmm...
Please be sure to visit all those on the list below that I share the day with and give them some comment love!!
