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.
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.
