Breast Cancer Ribbon Christmas Decoration
The other day, I was poked by one of my under-wire bras. I really need the support of the under-wire, but the way they are made allows for the wire to break through the fabric and poke the hell out of my boob/arm pit area, way before the bra is worn out. I always have issues with the right side poking through first since I am right handed. Well, I was examining one of the under-wires I removed and I noticed that it looked very much like a wishbone/cancer ribbon combo. I decided to crochet around the under-wire and then bend and criss cross the under-wire and support this criss cross with a tie. I used pink ribbon to crochet with. I tied a bow on the front with 2 colors of pink tulle. I think a little rose would be cute at the bow. What better way to remember a survivor of breast cancer than placing a pink ribbon made from an under-wire bra, on your Christmas tree.
