Hello! A local nonprofit in my area, Cancer Services Of Northeast Indiana, is in need of summer chemo caps for cancer patients. Many crocheted caps have been donated, but these can be very heavy and hot during warmer weather. They would really appreciate it if they had more sewn chemo caps in a light breathable fabric such as a cotton interlock knit. This is a link to a pattern that they provided me with. http://www.headhuggers.org/patterns/spatt01.htm   The pattern failed to mention to leave slit in a side seam open so you can turn the fabric right side out at the end. After flipping it right side out, use an invisible stitch to sew the side slit close. Tack (handstitch) the outer and inner crown circle pieces so the cap doesn't unfold and become a tube again.

 If you do choose to make one, please make sure to keep the fabric away from any dog or cat fur and keep the fabric nice and clean. You can send these caps directly to:
 Cancer Services of Northeast Indiana
6316 Mutual Drive
Fort Wayne, Indiana 46825

The first cap took a little bit of time to figure out the pattern, but the 2nd one sewed up quickly. Strongly is my daughter. She wanted to make them, so we worked together on this.

Aw, I love this. My daughter is itching to join Craftster too, when she's old enough she will. It's so great to see the love of crafts and the generosity of a sweet soul passed along from parent to child. Nice project, you two Smiley.

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.


Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO

Aww thank you craftylittlemonkey. That's so cute that your daughter is so eager to join! When I was little I made a different account and I remember being so excited to post my creations. I've learned from making these that anyone can sew, even a clueless 16 year old like me.  Grin
