What’s New from by Annie

Annie designed Bosom Buddy specifically for their #SewPink Initiative, their annual event to promote breast cancer awareness. Get your friends and guild members started with this low-priced printed version of the pattern. Each package includes 10 individual patterns* for easy sharing. The patterns are printed in full color on glossy letter stock.

Bosom Buddy - Pack of 10

If you, or someone you love, have had surgery for breast cancer — or other treatments that affect the chest or stomach area — this soft, comfortable cushion will be so appreciated. This simple project makes wearing a seat belt more comfortable: Design spreads pressure of the belt over a larger area and can be worn on shoulder or lap portion of the seat belt. It features double layers of foam padding. The sleeve wraps around the belt and is easily adjusted.

This Face Mask pattern has elastic (or fabric) ties on top and bottom to help keep the mask snug against the face and can be adjusted for comfortable wearing.

Face Mask - Pack of 25

It has pleats on each side for expansion. A flexible wire inserted at the top of the mask allows the wearer to shape the mask to fit more closely around the nose. Their are instructions for three sizes.

Want to add a filtering material to the mask? Annie has you covered:

Lightweight and breathable, this top-quality filtering material is perfect for face masks. Here are the specs:

Non-woven spun-bond polypropylene
1.25 ounce per square yard (on par with most surgical masks)
20 inches wide
Washing: Machine Wash/Tumble Dry

This material has a melting point of approximately 320 degrees. Do NOT use iron directly on the mask filter material. If you must iron your project, be sure to use a low heat setting and a pressing sheet or other heat barrier.

Annie recommends using this filter material in conjunction with tightly-woven quilting cottons for a stylish design and good quality filtration. It is also available in five yard cuts.
