Breast Pockets for Flatties

A simple request for my friend, Melanie Testa.  She is hoping to make it socially acceptable for "flatties"...women who have lost a breast or both breasts to breast cancer and not have the reconstructive surgery and not wear the prosthesis after mastectomy.  She needs 1000 of these pockets in 3 weeks.  See her post here.

Meanwhile, I am thinking of my friends who have had breast cancer, the survivors and the ones who have died.  In their honor, I have made these breast pockets, and I will probably keep working on a few more.  I applaud Melly in her uphill battle.  No one deserves to feel marginalized or belittled after surviving such a terrible disease.  Can you help?

Here's a few more...
