Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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!

Filled with the essentials.  The REAL emergency stuff!
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!
