Susan, I made a flannel cover for a section of plastic needlepoint canvas. I made the 2 Velcro strips by sewing a section of hook to an identical length of pile. On the prototype in the photo the Velcro is not sewn to the brace. I am refining them now and making summer weight ones with the Velcro attached. Also, I will be adding some bling. In her case, I don't need to pad them as she has such thick hair. If she has to be shaved for surgery, I will pad the top and bottom of the plastic canvas for comfort. If anyone needs one, please PM me.
He prayeth best, who loveth best, all creatures great and small.
