As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you have not already scheduled your regular mammogram, there is no better time than now! Early detection is the best protection.

We designed our free Bosom Buddy pattern specifically with breast cancer awareness in mind.

If you, or someone you love, have had surgery for breast cancer -- or other treatments that affect the chest or stomach area -- this soft, comfortable cushion will be so appreciated.

This simple project makes wearing a seat belt more comfortable:

  • Design spreads pressure of the belt over a larger area
  • Can be worn on shoulder or lap portion of the seat belt
  • Features double layers of foam padding
  • Simple to attach/remove from belt
  • Sleeve wraps around belt for easy adjustment
  • Also helpful for shorter individuals who find seat belts hitting them in the neck
  • Washer and dryer safe (depending on materials used)

Bosom Buddy measures: 14"H x 6½"W

Annie talked about Bosom Buddy during Season 2, Episode 39 of Live With Annie.

And in Season 2, Episode 40 of Live With Annie, Annie talked about the many other ByAnnie patterns which can be used for a variety of medical needs.


While we had to scale back our annual #SewPINK campaign this year, we invite you to check out these causes:

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has prepared a guide to understanding the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, and you can find it here:
