here are 2 breast pocket pouches to carry the drain bags. While visiting my cousin she mentioned while carrying this drain bag how uncomfortable it gets as the day wears on. So I remember hearing about these pockets to put the pouch in & then you pin it to your clothes so you don't have to carry it around. I made one of fleece for days like today when she was feeling cold & one out of flanelette for warmer days. Both are soft fabric, but they are so plain I am not sure if I should dress them up maybe a breast cancer ribbon or if they should not be seen but pinned under your shirt? Any thoughts on this would be most helpful. I did make the flanelette a sarcastic but hopefully funny one ( she loves frogs) & it says bundle of joy

You are so thoughtful Loralye to make this for your cousin - from what I've heard from Meg she said these bags and pillows help tremendously. Well done and I also like the frog fabric too. Love Chris

I wish these would have been an idea in 79 when my mom had her double! It sure would have made her more comfortable I am sure. The plain ones are wonderful and represent lots of love, comfort and thought!!!

I think most will wear them under their clothes, so plain is probably good, but a small BC ribbon would not show through. Such a thoughtful gift for her.

Thank you very much, maybe I will make more. I am thinking I should make the heart pillow too that Lillian has made? ~Hugs~
