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.

Such a lovely case! I’ll try this craft with my daughter this weekend!
Thanks, Mai. It’s a quick and easy project. Enjoy the time crafting with your daughter.
Great idea. Can you tell me what a “fat quarter” is?
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.
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.
Thanks, Debbie. Your explanation really helps make it clear for me.
I love quick and easy projects. And this one is functional too. Thanks for sharing Susan.
Thanks, Darlene. You know I’m all about quick, easy and functional!
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.
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.
Thanks, Cynthia. My favorite part was how quick it was (I seem to have a short attention span these days).
