I know, I know...you want to see what these hats look like that I've been sewing up over the past week! Here's a little photo gallery of what I'm wearing on my head these days...
So first- here's me with OFFICIALLY no hair. I shaved it bald this morning with my "ladies" electric razor and it was such a relief! It basically acted as a vacuum for what was left, there wasn't much actual shaving needed. Last night I sat on the sofa and was just pulling off the "hurricane" hairs that were left on top of my head. I just wanted it all gone!
The traditional bandanna- I bought a 6 pack, plus 2 floral ones at AC Moore. Awesome because they don't cover my big ears. Lousy because I look like a roadie at a Bon Jovi concert. At least they come in pretty colors like turquoise! *Big score today- I went to 5 Below and got 5 new bandannas for $1 each... and they are so cool... very mod designs... no western roadie paisleys!
My Chemo-Chic Cap. I sewed these and about 10 other ones (so far), all out of awesome designer fabric and made to match my wardrobe. It's inspired by a scrub hat I found from a fellow crafter (I can't take the credit). I made adjustments for my fit, drew out a pattern and hi-tailed it to the fabric store (and yes, I have used some of my DBW fabric stash, so now you can have a chemo cap and matching changing pad or diaper and wipes organizer). It ties in a little bow in the back.
Sleep Caps- AWESOME little knit caps, just like what newborn babies wear. They are like a t-shirt for your head. I bought these from a breast cancer survivor Diane and you can see her shop HERE or visit www.positiveattitude.etsy.com . I highly recommend these and if you know someone going through chemo buy them one...they will love it!
