Insulin Needle Pouch

I’m crafting to keep my sanity. I’ve been going a bit batty hemmed in by snow as we are. Although I am back home where so many of my good friends live, they are snowed in too. It’s not that folks can’t get out of their houses, it’s just that the roads aren’t the best and we have little ones who we would have to strap into the car.

So here I am, twiddling my thumbs. I needed to sew. I needed crafting diversion. With not much fabric to be found I chose to use one of River’s soft cloth face wipes and turned it into a small pouch to hold my insulin needles.

I sewed up the sides and sewed the buttons on. Tomorrow or when I get back home I’ll need to sew on the loops that will go over the buttons.

I found these sweet leaf buttons in my mom’s sewing kit. When I asked her if they were too special to her for me to use she said ‘You gave them to me.’ Hmmm. I have good taste! I was drawn to them instantly!

  1. Love it! This inspired me to do something with my MS injections. 🙂 Perhaps prettying them up would make them feel like less of a chore.

      Yes, it can get tough with the realities of caring for oneself when you have a disease. Anything that lightens the load or makes it seem less dreary is motivating.

What'd ya think?
