    Did you purchase the 10 x 10 pillow insert or make it?


    Survivor, they gave me a pillow and Mother made me some smaller ones as well. 18 years later the pillows still help. Yes, there is still physical discomfort due to lymph node removal and extensive surgery & radiation in the area. I am so blessed to be so healthy now, 18 years later.

    You are an angel to make these for survivors. Bless you!

    I made the little insert pillow. I can make 8 out of 40" x 42" of fabric. I have my instructed typed out so if anyone would like to try my method out, please PM me and I will send them to you. I really would like to test my instructions before posting them for the world to use. Thanks

    What do you stuff the pillow with? Also, do you donate them to a Cancer institute-like at the local hospital, or is there a better way to donate?

    These are called an "Anti-Ouch Pouch" - Sew News April/May 2008 had directions. The pattern and detailed instructions are in the Nancy's Notions section "gift of kindness" or a similar name...go all the way down to the bottom of the page and "Anti'Ouch Pouch" is listed...gives instructions with pictures...they refer to them as hanging pillows. If you can't find it, send me a pm.

    Good luck with your project,,,I try to keep one or two on hand. Comes in two sizes.

    I have 3 testers for my tutorial so I hope to be able to share with the whole world in a few days. I know you will all want to make one to donate to your local hospital gift shop, cancer chapter, and/or special friend.

    Looking forward to the tute. My DSIL just had a mastectomy and these could be very helpful. Thanks for sharing this.
