My sister is battling breast cancer and just had a double mastectomy. While recovering she had these amazing little aprons that helped her. There is more about it on my blog. I want to get as many people that are willing to sew up some of these aprons to donate to your local facilities that perform mastectomys. Please come and join me, or at least share with others that you think would be interested! http://cooksewsmile.blogspot.com/2012/04/leslies-lap-buddy-sew-along.html
Thank you!
Robin :)

This is a great thing! I shared the story on my facebook page. Hopefully, it will get spread around so much and people will want to help.

Thank you so much! My goal is for every woman or man that is facing a mastectomy to receive a handmade apron to help in their recovery! I have felt completely helpless with my sister, I guess this makes me feel like I can help in some way. :)

That's a great idea. I remember when my mom had her mastectomy she had a drain for a while and it was a pain to fiddle with it all the time. The pockets are brilliant.
