Another Sit-n-Sew Chemo Bag Covers

We had fun last night at our second Sit-n-Sew Chemo Bag Covers for Team Mathias.   Mathias Giordano is a young local boy who is fighting bone cancer.  Due to his dislike of seeing the chemo product bags, he has inspired a bunch of us to sew chemo covers in bright fabrics for other cancer patients.

This sew-in was an evening-time event to accommodate local friends who could not make the daytime event.  I even got one of my daughters to join in last night.



These bags are not for Mathias - they can be brought to any cancer unit and given to patients that want them.  This chemo bag cover project is spreading and the Levine Cancer Institute in North Carolina now has some covers since Mathias was there this week to receive his treatment.  Click here to read more about Mathias and how a chemo cover bag is sewn.

Photos Mathias' moms shared this week of Mathias receiving treatment in North Carolina.  Soccer-themed covers!

We had a handful of us stitching away in the classroom at our local Hobby Lobby store.  We finished over 50 bags with many more still chain-stitched together to be finished at home.

Finished bags are starting to pile up!

It was a nice was to make some new friends, have fun and support a good cause.

Happy Stitching!!
