Heart Pump Holster

Many heart pump users hold their monitoring apparatus in a back pack….but the pack has to be taken off to see the information or someone else needs to read it.

I had the privilege of making a prototype “carrier” for a heart pump monitor user earlier this year.  This gentleman was a person much more comfortable having his statistics and battery strength indicators at easy access.  Thus the Heart Pump Holster as I named it, was created. 



            

It’s ok to buy a too small dress if...

The next time you are shopping, you find a dress that you can't live without but it’s too small, use these tips to give you confidence to make the purchase. Then plan to bring your dress to Deb’s Sewing Service for alterations!   

When you are trying on the dress, zip it up as far as it will go without causing stress on the zipper.  Have a friend or clerk measure the amount of fabric gap at the top of the back dress between the two zipper tops.   If there is less than 2" we can sometimes let that much out of the seams.
