Breast pockets

I have made some 'breast pockets' for Melanie Testa. She is aiming to collect 1000 breast pockets in support of woman with breast cancer who choose not to have reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy. You can read more about it here.
I don't know any 'flatties' but have a friend who has had a lot of problems with her reconstructive surgery. I have always thought that if I was in the same situation I would go 'flat'.
These were fun to make - playing with commercial and dyed fabrics and adding a little bit of hand stitching.


  1. Beautiful stitching and I love the buttons!

  2. I love them and I am so happy that this opened a discussion between you and your sewing friends. See? Awareness, real awareness is being raised. Thank you for taking part.

  3. Very pretty pockets. Love the hand stitching,the colour combinations and the buttons, ie everything!

  4. Gorgeous! The stitching adds such a nice touch to them.
