The Anti-Ouch Pouch


In recognition of breast cancer awareness month, I gladly donated a day to make anti-ouch pouches. These wonderful little pouches are to be used as underarm hanging pillows. They are intended to provide comfort to women who have had breast surgery or are undergoing radiation treatment for breast cancer. The fiber-filled pouches are designed to look like cute tote bags with shoulder straps and they fit snugly under the arm to provide a cushion between the arm and the breast. I teamed up with a group of local seamstresses and custom fabricators to help create the pouches which were donated to two local clinics.
