From Mrs. Bennett - Teacher for the After School Sewing Class...

While visiting my mom in the nursing home, I noticed the need for catheter bag covers. I knew this wasn't going to be a very glamorous sewing project, so I asked the students if they were willing to do it. They all overwhelmingly said, "yes." Then, I told them I didn't have a pattern, but we'd work that out. Well, Barron asked if he could get going on it right away.

In the last sewing class, he sketched out a potential pattern, ran it by me, then took home some fabric and made it! The next morning, he brought in a completed, functional catheter bag cover! I was amazed! By the way, that's when I had to give him the bad news, Mom's nursing home is no longer using the heart shaped bag. Now they are going with a triangular one. He said, "Well, let me work on that, Mrs. Bennett." So he gathered up a large sheet of paper and a bundle of fabric. He is planning to work on it this weekend!
