return on creativity: first aid kit


I love simple sewing projects that satisfy a need.  I love them even more when I can cobble together all the necessary materials from my stash of supplies saving a trip to the store.

I created this little pouch to hold the first aid supplies in our camper.

You will need:

Two pieces of fabric (mine measured ten inches by fifteen inches)
Button
Thread
Paint
Foam stamps

1.  Sew two pieces of fabric right sides together leaving a three inch opening.
2.  Turn fabric right side out and press seams.




3.  Fold fabric three fourths from the top leaving a flap.  Fold in seams from opening.  Stitch around all sides creating a pocket.  I used a zig-zag stitch.



4.  Sew a button hole on the flap of the pouch.


5.  Stitch on a button to finish pouch.


6.  Decorate with paint and foam stamps.

Enjoy and be safe!

This is excellent article about first aid box. Actually we need to set a trend to keep first aid kit with us in our conveniences, houses and offices.
