DIY: Funny Tampon/Pad Pouch and Sweepstakes!

Let me tell you something. When I was younger (and still in school), I never really took note of when it would come, let alone be prepared for it. Soooo... I'd almost always get caught off guard, and I wouldn't have anything in my bag for it. Plus I felt lugging pads/tampons around is kind of embarrassing, specially since there was always a chance boys may be snooping inside my bag (oh, grade school / high school days). 




Now I don't really care about other people seeing it, after all, it's a part of life isn't it? I always make sure to have some on hand for emergencies - since without it, I wouldn't be able to move comfortably wouldn't I? (like this time I ran out of it.....) I figured it's high time I make a special pouch for it. And of course, it had to be funny (I am easily amused though, so forgive me if it's not funny or if it's disgusting). 

Supplies:
Ready-made pouch or sew one yourself
Template - my graphic is downloadable at the end of this post
HTV or Printable Heat Transfer Paper
Iron
Parchment paper

If you're doing your design using HTV, cut and weed out excess material. If you're using printable heat transfer material, just print and cut around your design. 

 

Prepare your pouch by ironing the creases out. I sewed my own - and actually felt pro enough to do some top stitching (which didn't turn out well, I might add).


Position your design - I always do this before ironing because it kills me to have a design that isn't centered (yes, I'm somewhat a perfectionist).


Use parchment paper to protect the surface of your HTV/printable heat transfer from the iron and iron your design, making sure to follow the right instructions for your chosen material.

Peel off your plastic backing if you're using HTV material. At this point I actually liked it the way it is - it looks like a monster pouch! And I dig that VERY MUCH. Unfortunately, my fiance commented that it looked like a vampire with buckteeth.... so, I had to add the wording. 


And here's the final result! I love how it looks - don't you? But I'm planning to make some more without the wording and less buckteeth.



I craft funny stuff when I'm on my period, it's just what makes me feel better. I hope I inspired you to try your hand at making your own tampon/pad pouch!
