Art Bras


A group of church women met last night to listen to guest speaker, Carolyn Jackson, informing us about her experience with breast cancer. She described her journey through treatment and recovery, then we all made art bras to auction off at her Breast Cancer Research Fundraiser. This is being done all over the country and it is so fun to do as a group. I recommend looking into this project in your area and participating. Just look up art bras on the internet and you'll see some fabulous designs. My daughter made the bra above and donated it last night. I think it is beautiful. I brought mine home to finish and I'll put up a picture after it's done.
It just takes a little imagination, some glue, trim and thread to make a huge donation to this worthy cause.

what a great cause, and that is very pretty. If i wore one, i would want to wear just that to show it off!

Ooh la la! The bra is so pretty, and what a wonderful cause. Looks like a lot of fun, especially if done with a group of women. I can imagine the laughter and discussion among you ladies as you worked on you bras!

We had a great time, especially when coming up with clever names for them. This bra was called "Arctic Underwire". I'm on my 2nd bra now...
