    Quiltlady: Regarding the amount of fabric: You need a piece 14"L x 22"W for the all sizes. If your knit is at least 58" wide, you can get two from that.
    I usually buy 1/2 yd. as it is hard to get just 14". Does result in a little waste, but some shrinkage with washing and drying too.
    Good luck and have fun making these. Someone will be blessing you. Penny

    I read the size you use . and this is perfect for all the FAT QUARTERS i have around....... i also PM'd you with my email and can't wait to get it and make these... i know of many ladies that is going through CHEMO but this is a great gift for the ELDERLY as well... we make lap quilts for several nursing homes in our area and i know many ladies say they are cold .... and really don't have much hair. so this can be a fashion trend. and will ASK our quilting group today about making these as holiday stuffer to add to X-mas baskets to the nursing home.
    Thank you again for sharing.... and be looking for the pattern in my email.... when you have time and rested. :thumbup:

    I PM'd you for the pattern - Thank you. I also had a button collection from my mother. I had foot and knee surgery so made "button bouquets" while I was sitting. Used small vases, containers from the thrift shops, florist wire, and lots of buttons. I glued in the stems and added "marbles" or stones around the base.I They were all one of a kind and gave them to friends, relatives. That pretty well wiped out the pretty buttons but still have a few.

    Just wanted to say I agree with everyone else these are gorgeous! I have a DQF on a Weight Watcher thread that was just diagnosed w/cancer. We are sending her gifts weekly to lift her spirits and help her in her fight to win. My week is coming up and just this morning I was wondering what I could start putting together to send and low and behold I see you pics...perfect! I just PM'd you for the pattern so I can make her a few. Thanks for the generous offer to share with all of us!

    I would love to buy one of these beautiful chemo turbans from you. I just found out about them today and my daughter who is 52 will be starting breast cancer treatment next week. Do you have any Fall/Winter colors available. Can you pm me with a price that you want?
    If you can't sell a ready made one to me, would you consider pm the pattern so I could print it and seek out someone around here that would make one.
    God bless you for all your kindness. Sincerely, Victoria

    Hi Marsha: Sounds like you had fun making button bouquets! I have collected vases and all the makings, but have yet to sit down and whip some up! Maybe having foot surgery is the secret?! LOL
    Not in my plans. Been there, done that already. Penny in K'zoo

    Unless she has an especially large head, I would use the smaller size pattern. Did you receive the pattern from me yet? If not, send me your email address by PM please. Have sent so many and with our computer down for the past two weeks, some fell through the cracks I fear. Hoping for a good outcome for your god-dau.
    When I was in high school in 1963-64, our family hosted an exchange student from England. She was from Rolleston-on-Dove, Staffordshire. Sadly, she is now deceased. She left a daughter who was named after me, tho' we have had no contact.

    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! :(
    I would love the pattern. My special friend is just starting 12wks of chemo and will loose her beautiful hair.I will pm you Thanks
