Recently a very dear friend of mine had to have emergency surgery following catastophic problems with her large intestine. This resulted in her having to wear a colostomy bag. To cheer her up I designed a simple pattern for a cover in the shape of a cat, along the lines of Pusheen, a cute anime Japanese kitty. Here are the pattern pieces I made up, with rough instructions for sewists to follow. The dotted lines on the outline of the actual colostomy bag show the difference between the colostomy bag and ileostomy bag, which has a little fold-out extension on the bottom, so for an ileostomy you need to leave the bottom open. Excuse my scrappy pencil drawing!
