Excellent! I am sure they will be appreciated! Hugs LLDS!
Well done job love lady bug
For "amholb0". Didn't know if you would find a private message so found the design file and some instructions you can read through. Welcome to Cuties.
how did you make these? My friends have two children with g-tubes and these look just like the little pads they put around the tube for the leaking. How many layers and do you just hoop all the material at once and then cut them out?
Well done Chris, I may have another look at them and see if I can incorporate the stitching to attach the Velcro. We can put our heads together next time I see you. Hugs n roses, Meganne
Alguém pode -me explicar o que são essas peças para que serve desculpem a minha ignorância mas não faço ideia o que são!
I didn't know either so I googled it and found this explanation
Stoma Pads are soft, flexible cushions which are placed between the tracheostomy tube neck flange and the patient’s neck.
Obrigado não fazia ideia estou muito grata a si por me esclarecer.
Abraços de Portugal(:
This was very kind of you. I would have done some, but the postage would have been too much from here. I was looking at them. I bet that they will want to wash these in a pillow case or lingerie bag so they don't go down the hole with the water. Just a thought.
excellent if i only lived near :(:(lol hugs
What are stoma pads used For?
When someone has a bag attached to their body, either for feeding or draining of urinary or faecal waste, they often have to insert a pad between the bag and the skin because any leakage is usually highly acidic and it burns and ulcerates the skin. That's how these pads will be used. Hugs n roses, Meganne
....s how these stoma pads will be used.
hugs n roses, Meganne
This is gorgeous!
Fab job for a fab cause. *
Great work Chris !!!!
Thanks Dani, love Chris
they are so cute, love the lady bugs.
Thanks DeVon, me too! Love Chris
This is one of the kindest things I've seen.
Hi Linda, thanks for your comment. I reckon everyone on this site does amazing things to help one's fellow "woman/man" out. Love Chris
P.S. Meg's design is really cool!!!!
What a kind and generous soul you are, Chris, I'm sure these will be greatly appreciated! Hugs and *s, Deb
Thanks so much - they don't take long to do and are for such a worthy cause. Love Chris
Chris these are womderful
Cute little things, aren't they? Love Chris
Thanks so much love Chris
Well done Chris and of course Meganne. A wonderful job and so very quick. Sarah
Well, it was easy as Meganne's design was quick. It took longer to put the pieces of Velcro on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Chris
Chris where does the velcro strip go on these? You did a wonderful job - I know they are appreciated!! Hugs, Laura*
Can you see the open cut - that is where I put a piece of Velcro - one part goes on the top of the left hand side and then under the right hand side I put the opposite piece. So when you put one side onto the other it grips. I hope this makese sense. Love Chris
I see now where the velco goes. That probably was the hardest part of the project.
Super job Chris - it will be a wonderful addition to her care. *4U
Thanks Shirlene - I hope so. Love Chris
P.s. I am sure there are many other people making them too. Love Chris
It is very special what you are doing for someone else in need, the world needs more people like you. Your kindness is awesome. Have a great day
Thanks so much for the lovely comments. I've just finished sewing the 50 little velcro strips onto each pad and will post them off tomorrow. Love Chris
Wow! That is awesome and generous for making so many. You must be able to fit a few in one hooping. They are going to be thrilled to receive so many.
Hi Anita, I started off making 4 in my 5x7 hoop and did that a few times. Then this afternoon I put them in my 150x360 and did 9 at a time. I've made 50 of them - I'm just sewing on the Velcro strips (very small!!!!) Love Chris
Think more cuties would make these for her if we were living in Australia. Thanks for coming to her aid and thanks Meganne for the design.
What is stoma?
got the cart before the horse. I just read in community. How nice to have so many to use now for her.
I think she will need a lot! They have to be changed frequently. Love Chris
Cute! Love the colors!
That's the fabric - it's Ladybugs! Love Chris
great work Chris , did you just hoop a double layer of fleece?
Hi Monika, I used Flannelette on top and woollen batting (I use it for my quilts). I didn't use any stabliser and only used white through the colour changes. Meg said she did a couple, but it was easier just to sew straight through without changing. Love Chris
