A few years ago my good friend Talya asked me for some fabric covers for her stoma. Talya had bowel cancer and had under gone many many surgeries. Aged at just 27 she passed away, a year ago today. She spent all of her time helping others through her blog Feeling Ostomistic, and also as a graphic designer. She designed all of my logos and business cards for this page, as well as for another business of mine.
She once asked me if she could release my pattern on her blog as so many of her followers asked where she got the covers. It was downloaded over 3000 times from her website, and 1500 times on Craftsy (before it changed to blueprint)
It was the first pattern I ever put on paper for other people.
I was reminded today of her passing which happened on mothers day 2019 and thought the time had come to add this to my website. To honour Talya I have left it unedited as she published it. The pattern will forever remain to be free. But please consider a donation to anything to do with cancer, and keep on top of your bowel health.
