Who Supports Us More Than Moms? We Support You Blog Hop

Breast Cancer has touched some very strong women in my life.
This disease hasn't held these ladies back, it has propelled them forward.

MY MOMS

Yep, I have several...

It seems like such a small thing to do for them, but I wanted to make each one a little something to show my support.
They are always there for me.




This is the card I made for each one.  I'm no poet..lol
but they will know how to use their new
lingerie bags.



This one is for
the first person I loved in this world.
My beautiful mom, Susan.
She beat breast cancer over 12 years ago.



This one is for my dad's wife, Debbie
.  We call her Nana because she is more than a step-mom and we just don't like "step."
She beat breast cancer over 7 years ago.



If not for this lady, I wouldn't have the love of my life.
My Mother-in-Law, Norma, is one of the most giving people I know
and 
she is a breast cancer survivor, too!




I made this one for my mom at work.
Nancy takes care of everyone and never asks anything in return.
She just celebrated finishing radiation
and
everyone celebrated with her!!



I had a call back on my mammogram last year and everyone of these ladies was there to let me lean...
'til all was clear.

I love each mom so much.



If you would like to make your own lingerie bags, I followed my friend Jen's tutorial over at
Glinda Quilts.  I used her double casing tutorial and really like how it worked.
 Jen calls them pants bags and says you need one on holiday because you don't want to have to put your drawers in other people's drawers.  She made me one a couple of years ago.

If you would like the "We Support You" Friendship Quilt Pattern, you can purchase it for $12.00 by emailing Madame Samm directly at madamesamm@me.com


If you've been counting, I did make one more.

What can I say, I'm a bra gal

This one for another important lady, my daughter.


She supports me...

Thank you Madame Samm and Pat for a great hop.

These "pants bags" are sew darling, Carla! I actually had a thought to use this tutorial to make an accessory for my overnight bag but did not find the time. I am glad I did not. Yours are so much nicer than what I would have made. All the little details are so lovely. What a wonderful way to show you care for the beautiful moms in your life. Thank you for sewing your support and sharing your story in this hop ... <3 Pat

Julia Plunkett said...

Your lingerie bags are just adorable! What a great way to honor the women in your life. Thanks for sharing!

Suze said...

Carla, You certainly have been touched by breast cancer - wow! When I was diagnosed years ago, I was shocked. I was the first and only one in my family and it was totally uncharted territory for me. Luckily, I had the support I needed. I love your lingerie bag. I was thinking as I saw this what a great dirty clothes bag it would make for your drawers as you travel. I always hate putting my dirty under things back in my suitcase. It would be perfect for that, too. I agree how you hate putting your drawers in others drawers, too. What a great idea and great projects, wonderful stories, and a circle of support. Thanks for participating.

Doris Rice, The Quilting Queen said...

Those bags are awesome and such a thoughtful gift for those who support you. I love them all.
