Breast Cancer Awareness Crafts

Filed Under: Crafts, knitting and crochet, sewing

Unless you live under a rock (and if you do, I must say sometimes I'm a little envious) you probably already know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. There are tons of things you can do to show your support for those affected by breast cancer (my friend N. is running a marathon this weekend - in college we were major couch potatoes, I'm glad at least one of us has changed). However, what a lot of places seem to want you to do is buy things.

In general, I'm not opposed to the idea of supporting a cause with your purchases, but it feels a little like breast cancer has almost become a commercial cause. If you want to show your support (and aren't athletically inclined) by making, rather than buying something, here are some projects worth checking out:

If you're more of a shopper than a crafter, check out Think Before You Pink for some useful information on how to make informed purchases in support of breast cancer awareness.

    Hi,

    I am an Australian cross stitch designer and I have designed a Breast Cancer Ribbon cross stitch pattern which I am releasing to the public domain for anyone to pass and share this pattern around for free and people can also stitch this design on products to sell for donations for Breast Cancer Research.

    You can find it on my free patterns page here http://www.artecy.com/free.html

    Thanks and Best Wishes
