    Since so many of my friends and a few family members have either had or succumbed to cancer, I try to volunteer when and where I can to help the victims. I make dolls 4 local kids with cancer, and do chemo caps. I also do classes sometimes with young children about the dangers of smoking tobacca. A few days ago, I came upon a chemo cap pattern (simple) that was free to those who would 'give away' the caps. I made several, than decided to take some donated material a quilt friend gave me for the 'dolls dresses' and sewed them together then cut out the chemo cap pattern. This one is adult sized and I hope you will enjoy it. If anyone wants the link, it can be found by clicking around in the search under chemo caps, and eventually found. My mother and an uncle died of brain cancer, and then there are others.......hope the two pictures show up okay. I'm not real good at this picture stuff.

    if you wish, I will try to find the link...but it shouldn't be that difficult. Thanks for those who choose to make the caps. I know they are evidence of encouragement to those who struggle, losing their hair and health.

    Here is one link I found. The sewing-type pattern links are on the far right.
    What a great idea! Good way to use scraps for something worthwhile, as well!

    Thanks. The cap she is wearing is somewhat similar but not quite ...to the one I made

    Thanks for the link. I loved all on it.
