 How to make a pouch cover

In the Winter 2016 edition of our Tidings magazine, Wendy kindly introduced herself and explained why she made pouch covers.

Wendy began making pouch covers when she had problems with sore skin. She found that cotton was best against her skin, but the covers available were not quite what she wanted and some were rather expensive. So, not having picked up a needle since primary school (many years ago), she set out to experiment.

These days Wendy wears the bag covers just for fun. At a recent stoma open day in Norwich she was invited by Lucy, her stoma care nurse, to come along and exhibit her bag covers and demonstrate the process of making them.

Here Wendy gives clear instructions on how to make pouch covers.
