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.

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.

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