My kids love Band-Aids. As soon as they even slightly bleed or scratch themselves, they insist on having one. I keep some in the car and I started keeping some at arms reach. But when they are not at home, I decided a little pouch would be perfect to go in their back packs. Perfect for school or at a friend’s house or on a road trip. I think kids like feeling a sense of independence when they can take care of themselves.
This pouch tutorial is really easy and requires a fat quarter of fabric or less! Use your favorite scraps up or have your kids pick out their favorite fabric. This would make a perfect homemade gift to sew up for a friend or family member.
Band-Aid Pouch Tutorial Supplies:
Step 1. Cut fabric.
First cut out two pieces of 11 x 7″ contrasting fabric. You then want to fold in half and mark the center of the fabric. Now measure down on edge 1 1/2″ and then draw a line from their up to the center that you marked. Cut on each side so that you have a house like shape in your fabric. As seen below. Do to both fabric pieces.
Step 2. Sew.
Place those two pieces of fabric right side together. Sew around the whole piece leaving a 3″ gap open. After turn right side out. Top stitch around the whole thing.
Step 3. Snaps.
Now we’re going to add snaps. Mark where you want the snaps on the top where the triangle is and add the snap per instructions on package. Then fold up your pouch to where you want it to be finally sewn. Just until it looks right. Then mark where you want the other end of the snap to go. Make sure you have the opposite end of snap. Place snap.
Step 4. Final sewing.
Now that your snaps are in place, stitch the sides up on top of the top stitching. And you’re done.
With this easy pouch tutorial you’ll be able to store your Band-Aids in a kid-friendly pouch for on-the-go!
