October is breast cancer awareness month. In honor of the brave women and men I know who have fought this beastie I offer you today's Freebie Friday.
Sindy Rodenmayer has several free patterns on her website Fat Cats. You will need to register as a member to access them, but this is a free and easy process. Here are a few of her breast cancer awareness support patterns that caught my eye.
Anti-Ouch Pouch by The American Sewing Guild "This “Anti-Ouch Pouch” was designed by Deon Maas and is dedicated to her mother, Doris Lock, who taught her to sew. Both women are breast cancer survivors and members of the American Sewing Guild. This soft pillow is designed to be worn snugly against the underarm area to cushion the area after breast surgery.The wedge shape gently holds the arm away from the body when the user is standing.The strap holds the pillow in place without having to use sore arm muscles to “clutch” it.The strap is adjustable and the fiberfill may be adjusted via the overlapped opening."
If you would like to read an interesting blog post about how to really help raise awareness and funds for breast cancer I recommend: National No Bra Day and Breast Cancer Awareness Month — OR — Please Put That Pink Can of Soup Down & Put Your Bra Back On written by a cancer survivor.
