Pamala Buttoned Slouch – Free Pattern

Today is my mom’s birthday. It is also her 5 year anniversary of being declared clear of breast cancer; although the official word won’t happen until next month when she sees her doctor. The Pamala Buttoned Slouch was originally published on Cre8tion Crochet as a contributor pattern, and more of my patterns can be found over there as well.

My mom is such a strong lady and has come through so much. She is an inspiration, and I love her! After designing this hat, I created some other designs in the Pamala line which can be found in my Ravelry store HERE. You can also read more about my mom’s story and what led to this pattern line here on the blog.

Crochet for a Cause: Awesome Breastforms

I recently became involved with an amazing group of volunteers called Awesome Breastforms. You may already know if you have been following me any length of time, but this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. My mom is a breast cancer survivor coming up on her 5 year mark and I am loving helping other women. These knitters and crocheters have joined ranks to help provide women get their curves back. We provide breastforms absolutely free of cost to the recipient. As¬†volunteers, we buy yarn, give our time to lovingly hand make the breastforms and then pay shipping to send them “home”. We are shipping all over the world and changing lives one woman at a time! We have also started making swim forms as well.
