I was inspired by this tutorial from A Spoonful Of Sugar… with improvised variations. Nevertheless I love her cute and very useful pouch idea; and I’ve been wanting to make a first aid kit for my home but haven’t really got to it until now.
I wanted something quick to sew (itchy fingers!), just something crafty to accomplish in a short time. Took me less than 15 minutes to cut and sew.
I use felt. Cut out 2 pieces of white felt 4″x4″, and 4 pieces of red felt 1″x4″. And using a red thread I handsew the red felt onto the white one, to form a red cross. Then mod podge it to both sides of this vinyl pouch I have (free from the pharmacy when I purchase my monthly supplements).
Lo and behold! A first aid kit pouch. Easy peasy.
Then I started filling it up with things I believe is essential in a first aid kit. I did not buy any of the items, we already have them at home except that it is all over the house. So this moderately small pouch is just the right thing to keep all these essentials in one place!
I have bandages, cotton, cotton buds, scissor, plaster, alcohol wipes, iodin wipes, disposable gloves, CPR mask, energy drink, nail clipper, twizzer, hypodermic needles, tissue paper, disposable face mask, gauze, safety pin, and spontan.
Hmmm… what else do I need?
So if you’re looking for an easy project, this is a good start 🙂
