2008 Featured Project - the Anti-Ouch Pouch

American Sewing Guild member, Sew News contributor and K-12 art teacher, Deon Maas, created the Anti-Ouch Pouch while recovering from a mastectomy. Maas designed the wedge-shaped  pillow to ease the painful area under her arm, replacing the small pillow that she had been using. The wedge shape gently holds the arm away from the body while the adjustable strap holds the pillow in place without having to use sore arm muscles to “clutch” it. An opening in the pouch also lets the user adjust the amount of fiberfill for maximum comfort. The Anti-Ouch Pouch not only provided comfort for Maas, but it also allowed her hands to be free to pursue the activities she loved, especially sewing.

This simple project can be completed in about 15 minutes and each can be given a unique look depending on the fabric choice.
