Seat Belt Cushions Serve Many Purposes

Our local Breast Cancer Coalition offers their clients seat belt cushions to use. We were honored when they asked that we make a batch of 20 for them. Sadly, the supply ran out fairly quickly so we made more.
These are great when it comes to protecting the surgical scars post mastectomy or any incision in the area. More important, they protect the PIC line [IV access port] for those folks undergoing chemo therapy or long term antibiotics. 
These padded cylinders which are secured with strips of Velcro wrap around the seat belt strap and protect the tender skin of the neck from the constant rubbing of the strap. As often happens, I start making items at the request of customers so a few years ago I began making them with kids in mind. Right now, in my car, we have Olaf, Angry Birds, Star Wars and Lacrosse Sticks. An eclectic mix my four little ones. Go figure.
Please remember, if you don't see a color or pattern or theme that matches your style or color of car interior, tell me what you like, I'll make them.
At the sides of this post are a few of the latest cushions I made this week.

Major Sale Coming Up

We're in a quandary here Aprons With Attitude and Kat's Karry-Alls: TOO MUCH STOCK!!!!
We need to make room for items we found on our recent trip to San Francisco as well as new designs and ideas. Over the next couple months we'll be giving away items for our author blog winners and selling others: large and small, some of which are leftover Christmas theme items. In our world it's never too late to plan ahead!! So stay tuned while we take photos of available items. After February and March we'll also have Valentines and Saint Patrick's theme items too!

Today we're showing two new items to the store: Appliance Covers and Smart Phone Sacs.
The appliance covers will be available by special order.  We'll pick the prints and colors to your choosing OR--if you have gently items [either clothing or household linens or window treatments] that you aren't ready to give up or give away, send it to us. We can turn it into something new!!

Just like the appliance covers shown at the right, the customer had a length of tapestry she loved and wanted to show off. Matching it with solid double faced quilt we turned it into four different appliance covers of varying shapes and sizes. They look really really nice. And she's happy which is most important.
The phone sacs are a resurrected idea. We'd made them several years ago but they never quite caught on. This time--at the request of a vendor pal at the LW Emporium--we found of piece of vintage fabric and turned it into sacs to fit her Smart Phone. She wanted a strap so it can hang around her neck beneath her shirt so we attached one. The idea caught on and within hours we had a whole pile made from old denim jumpers, curtains and reused totes.
There's nothing like keeping something around and eventually reuse it.

Combining Shops

After many trials and tribulations, we have decided to combine our business blogs under one name: Aprons With Attitude.
No more KatsKarryAlls
Everything we design and make will now be offered under this new blog which we created last week.
We apologize for the inconvenience it may cause
