June Challenge

Almost everyone will have a button box (or two) usually inherited and added to, and rarely used.

This month’s challenge is to sew something with your buttons.

It can be any size, in any form, whatever you like -  photograph it and send it to Julie on our website edinburghtextileart.co.uk

Please complete them before the 7th July

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.


In the current Covid-19 restrictions we suggest you contact your local breast cancer centre for advice regarding delivery.


The pattern is below.  All contributions are very gratefully received.
