This is a first for us at Sew Modern Bags to feature a bag that was designed for First Aid. But what a great idea! Ideal for keeping in the car or your purse for all those knocks and scrapes that need a squeeze of antiseptic and a band-aid.
The gifted designer has made a free pattern and tutorial for a First Aid Zipper Pouch. This handy little zipper pouch holds everything that you will need for first aid and can go everywhere with you.
If you make your Zipper Pouch as a First Aid version then it is the perfect size. It fits two Epi-Pens (for those of you who have to carry them), large knee/elbow size band-aids, cleaning wipes and of course, an After Bite stick for those pesky mosquito bites and lots more.
It is also a great scrap buster project, allowing you to use up some of your pretty red and white scraps. Or you can just make it with any colors you like and use it as a basic zipper pouch.
What you will need to make the First Aid Zipper Pouch
Five 2″ by 2″ squares of red/white fabric
Four 2″ by 2″ squares of neutral fabric
One 6″ zipper
Two 1.5″ by 5″ background pieces
Two 2.5″ by 7″ background pieces
One 7″ by 9″ piece of fabric for the backing
Two 7″ by 9″ pieces of fabric for lining
Two 7″ by 9″ pieces of medium interfacing, like Pellon’s 931T Fusible Midweight
