Step 1: Stuff you need...

Here's what you'll need to make it!
*Hot Pad
(I got 2 ugly ones at the dollar store--sorry if you love them,
and then covered them in damask material scraps)
*Plastic sealable bags that are about the same size as the hot pads
*Sewing machine
*Big button
*First aid or other supplies!
*chocolate (real emergency stuff)

Step 2: Stitches and Cuteness.

Here I stitched a new cover for my hot pads...
handstitched on a big button so it lines up with that loop thing.

I used some teal ribbon and hot glued it on for cuteness!

Step 3: Zipper Seal Bags

I used 4 plastic bags and alternated the opening sides...Stitched it down the center

Carefully, they slip!

Cut the useless unopening side piece off about an inch to the seam...

Step 4: Pack full of the essentials!

Knife, pen, gum, tampon, toothbrush, hair ties, saftey pins, bandages, nail clippers, Antiseptic, burn cream, tylenol, mini bandages
(cuz they are way cuter)


Step 5: Pack it and Use it!

The day after I made this kit...I totally biffed it on the sidewalk and smacked the crap out of my knee...totally wrong shoes...
it bled everywhere!  But I was glad I had this!  I whipped out the antiseptic and some bandaids!  Done deal!

I keep one in the glove box of the car and the other in my bag!

You think those pot holders are ugly?!?! Kidding :) Very cute idea. Who says first aid kits can't be practical and cute too!

:) The worst part is when I went to the dollar store last week they had cute hot pads for sale! Oh well, maybe I'll have to make some more!
