I made this for myself after seeing the free pattern at PatternPile.com. It's free from Jo-Lynda's Attic at Craftsy.
I was inspired to use the fabrics I did for two reasons. One, I'm a breast cancer survivor and two, I had all three in my stash. :wink:
I like to increase awareness of breast cancer and get people talking about it. I have survivor's guilt a lot, especially about my best high school friend who died from it a day before her 40th birthday...when I also had it but didn't know it yet (but my hubby suspected it). I was diagnosed at age 40 and there are so many women I know (and two MEN!) who were diagnosed in their 30s. Thankfully for me I was done having children.
I was proud of myself because I tackled a zipper in this project! It's for the inside pocket and I initially was just going to have an open pocket, but when I saw how easy the zipper was, I gave in. I didn't even use my zipper foot! I may just have to tackle bias binding soon, too!
