Breast Pockets

Recently, a incredible artist, Melanie Testa, posted about a call for breast pockets on her blog. Check out the post here. She is a breast cancer survivor and a proud flattie. Her goal is to collect 1,000 pockets. I jumped at the chance to participate. I hope that you will join in, too!

The breast pocket I made is for my mom, Sally, who is a 10 year breast cancer survivor. She is 85 years old and going strong. When I told her of this project, she requested her pocket to be red and glittery. I sewed red sequins on top of the pink pocket.

Breast Pocket for my mom, Sally.
