I joined a church sewing group. Mostly the emphasis is teaching women to sew and making quilts for various charity causes. Often we get donated patterns, fabric and other items.
I am wondering what items other church groups have made that were made from the icare patterns. I really do not know what items are in demand. I am going to tell the group leader about the programme and see what is needed.
I was asked to make some haircutting capes for the volunteers who come to cut hair every month. I am not sure what they need. I think that I would rather ask them but then what about a pattern? And what fabric should I use. I was thinking about dollar store plastic table cloth? ?

I have no Official group experience, but I made the dressing gown and I understand that if you put snaps along the shoulder and top of sleeve instead of sewing it, the person can use it for eg mastectomy x-rays or whatever, while keeping the other side warm and covered. There was thread about it. When I made the gown the armhole size default was way too small so make a trial. Actually, my husband wears his gown a lot around the house.
