WIP Wednesday A Cancer Bag

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. :)

Sure is cheering me up to look at those! Love the butterflies and the pink dots are just plain fun.

It must be really gratifying for you to being this for others.
