New Ideas

My two type 1 children love their pump belts, but they also love trying new and fashionable ways of wearing their pumps.  When I tried making the new "Peg Legs" leggings pattern from Patterns for Pirates, my daughter requested a pair where the waistband could hold her pump.  This was her tester pair, and she loves them.  If I can find some good fabrics for these, I may be adding them to the shop.

Other people are obviously also interested in sewing innovations for people with type 1 diabetes.  Take a look at this fabulous tutorial from EYMM, for trousers with zips that enable you to do your injections in your thigh without exposing yourself!…/t1-diabetes-aka-insulin-shot-friendl…/
