With 2 daughters, you can imagine that this DIY Feminine Case was a necessary project.  ‘Nuff said.  It’s a super easy beginner’s sewing project and I made them for $.25 each!

I used a fat quarter that was only $1.  Iron your fabric before you start to make it easier to sew.  I ironed my cases after the fact and while it was fine, there was a bit more wrestling with the seams while sewing them in place.

I cut the fat quarter into 4 pieces.  Cut each piece to 15″ long.

Sewing Steps

1.  Fold 1/2 inch down on each end and sew.

2.  Fold up 5 1/4 inches for the pocket and sew on each side of the  folded piece to make the pocket.

3.  Turn right side out.  Fold 1/4 inch on the sides of the flap and 1/2 inch on the top of the flap.  Sew down.

4.  Fold the flap so that you’ll have approximately a 2 inch flap.  Sew a seam 1/8 inch from the fold of the flap.  This seam helps hold the flap closed without using a snap or Velcro.

The case is about 5 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches long.  It’s large enough to hold pads, or liners and tampons.

Pick a pretty fabric for these cases.  Let’s be honest, anything pretty and happy is appreciated at this time each month. 

 It was easy to make these 4 cases in about 20 minutes. Drop back by later this week to see why I chose to make 4 DIY Feminine Cases.

    1. A fat quarter can be found in a craft store or Walmart in the fabric section. It’s precut section of fabric that it folded up and neatly packaged in a square. There’s so many pretty fabrics and can be found for $1-$2.

      1. A fat quarter is 1/4 of a yard of fabric. Instead of it being taken across the whole width of the fabric, it is taken from only one half. I know that’s confusing. In other words if you take a yard of fabric, folded in half selvage to selvage then fold the piece from raw edge to raw edge, you have the size of a fat quarter. The piece will measure 18″ x 21″. You can buy them in packages already cut at most fabric stores, craft stores,, Walmart etc. Or you can cut your own. Remember it 18″ (1/2 yard) x 21″ (or 1/2 of width of fabric). Hope that helps clarify.

  1. This is adorable and it almost looks like a cell phone case so no one would guess what’s inside it if they catch a glimpse of it in your purse.

  2. There are so many things about this post that I love. Great colors, thrifty, easy and perfect for teens (or almost any age!) You really did a great job with this.

    1. Thanks, Cynthia. My favorite part was how quick it was (I seem to have a short attention span these days).
