    These are some I made last week for a "shirt tail" relative who is just starting chemo. I love this pattern, have used it many times, and always find the wearer likes it too.
    I have it saved in a file and it was a free pattern at my LFS (local fabric shop), so no restrictions on copying or sharing. Quick and easy to make, about 15-20 minutes each. PM me your email if you would like a copy. Seems I know too many friends who have needed these recently! :(

    T-shirt knits work best. Stacked MOP buttons.

    What a wondeful thing to do. I am the same way it seems like every time I answer the phone someone else has been diagnosed with cancer. My mom is a breast cancer survivor and I think this is a wonderful wonderful thing you are doing!!

    I would love the pattern for the chemo turbans. I wish I had a pattern for it when my mother needed to wear one. Let me know how this all works as far as address, postage and etc. that is needed. Thanks

    Oh my, CherokeeGal: I have collected buttons forever. I literally have too many to even think about counting. I sort them by type; mother of pearl, glass, plastic, vegetable ivory, bone, bakelite, etc. They live in hardware cabinet drawers.
    I love making jewelry from them, and almost always wear some vintage button jewelry. I tell my DH that sorting buttons is better than Xanax! So relaxing and comforting. LOL!
    It is getting harder to find nice bags or jars of buttons for sale. I used to get them all the time, fairly priced. Now people want over $10. for a jarful, when half are not anything I am interested in. I have gotten very selective in my purchasing. Told DH, if anything happens to me, don't just throw these away!

    Marsha433: If you pm me your email address, I will send it as an attachment. No cost and you can print it out yourself. Its three pages, only 3 pieces to cut, and easy to sew.

    Those are really nice. :thumbup:
    What is the best type of material to use to make them? (whoops...I just saw the note above one of the pictures that t-shirt knits worked best.)
    I hope you don't mind, but I PMed you to asking for the pattern.
