Yesterday afternoon, I cut out six cancer bags, pillows, handles and linings. Today I worked on sewing one of the bags together. I had made a bag about a year or so ago but, honestly, didn't remember how it went together. The construction is straight forward enough yet I had trouble with 'boxing' the corners as no dimension was given. I finally settled on 3 1/2 inches across the bottom width as I had my 3 1/2 inch square ruler out. I didn't sew up the comfort pillow as I wasn't sure of the softness/firmness level. Tomorrow at the sewing day, there will be ladies that will be able to help me determine the correct comfort level. I also made a banana bread to take for snack tomorrow.
I choose the butterflies for the outside because they are so bright and cheerful. All the bags will have the same girl-y white on pink polka dots...just because........polka dots are fun! I hope this bag will cheer someone as they are going through the breast cancer treatment. :)
