Melanie Testa is the originator of this project, which is intended to give courage and support to women who have had mastectomies and decided not to have reconstructive surgery.
I did not have a mastectomy, I opted for double lumpectomy since I had early stage cancer in both breasts. I did however have to have 3 surgeries on my right breast inorder to get clear margins as a result I am a little lopsided but who cares, I am healthy and so far cancer free.
Anyhoo, I have pictures of a couple of the pockets I made.
One I have mailed (I forgot to photograph the other two in the envelope) and one I will be mailing within the next couple of days.
Melanie is a great inspiration to me, we are email and facebook friends and I will always cherish her friendship and encouragement.

Knitted breast pocket. I wanted to try and see if I could knit a pocket and I did. Woohoo
This has been a fun time for me. Melanie, thanks for the opportunity
