Hi I'm Angela.

After coming across a few of my daughters unwanted bras in a drawer, I took them to my local charity shop who told me they did not sell underwear. So I came home and thought about the idea of making items out of the bra material and selling them to raise money for a breast cancer charity.

I had a mastectomy in 2004 and have been blessed to be cancer free since. Some of my family and friends have also had breast cancer so this charity is close to my heart.

With my first unwanted bra I made a simple scrunchie and then started to think of other things that might sell. Making the fairies is my favourite, it's hard to let them go once they are finished and ready to fly but knowing that the money is going to such a good cause makes it all worthwhile. I love crafting and hope other crafters will join me in making bracraft items.

Please visit the bracrafts facebook page for more details and to see what I and other crafters have made out of unwanted bras.

Thank you for taking the time to read this

Stay well
