Welcome to the Edinburgh Branch of the Embroiderers Guild.
Cushions for breast cancer
Our current projects include making cushions for those who have had operations for breast cancer. As well as providing comfort in hospital they are particularly useful for going home and having to wear a seatbelt.
They can be made with or without a strap. Stuffing should be not too firm and can be polyester stuffing, (the contents of old pillows or cushions can be fluffed out and salvaged) wool, kapok or any suitable soft stuffing. Material for the cushions can be recycled from many items as long as it is smooth.
Cushions can be left at Bruntsfield Sports shops in Morningside Road and the David Lloyd centre at the Gyle, or The Key Place, Bank Street, Penicuik or The Key Place, Vicar Street, Falkirk.
The pattern is below. All contributions are very gratefully received.
