I wanted to give you a sneak peak of the pillow I am working on for this month's a Dozen Quilters project. I know that comfort pillows aren't specifically for breast cancer patients but it's a cause that is near and dear to my heart. I have family and friends who have been affected by breast cancer. I hope one day people smarter than I am will find a cure for breast cancer, for all cancers. Until they do, my husband and I try to volunteer our time and money towards the cause.
So, without further ado....
I drew the template for the 'bras' myself. They are appliqued on with lightweight heat and bond so they are still very soft. I machine stitched around the edges of each bra before piecing the squares together.
I plan to embroider 'Save the Ta Tas' in pink in the center but I am not sure if I will do it in this 'font'.
The final pillow measures 8x12.5. Most of the fabrics are from the Jennifer Paganelli Flower Power fabric collection but the back is from the Art Gallery Fabrics Sugar collection.
I will take pictures of the final pillow once the embroidery is done.
Save the Ta Tas!
