box (red or white)
round soft ice pack
white jersey knit
- Cut out a square of white fabric big enough to fit 4 circles just slightly larger than your ice pack. A CD was the perfect size for a template. I just upcycled an old white t-shirt. Fold the fabric in quarters, then trace your circle onto the fabric.
- Cut out your 4 circles of fabric. Set 2 pieces aside. The remaining pieces will become the pocket opening on the back. Cut one end off of each circle leaving a little overhang, about 1/3 and 1/4.
- Fold a piece of black felt just smaller than the width of your circles in half. Starting on the fold make 2 straight cuts about 1/4″ a part by 1″ long. Connect the two straight cuts with a circle.
- Take the two whole circles you set aside and sew the felt eyes on just above half-way.
- Now it’s time to assemble the pocket. Take the two cut circles and hem the straight edges. Place the right sides of the top half and pocket on top of each other. Sew a circle around the outer edge. Trim any excess fabric.
- Flip your pocket inside out and slip your ice pack inside.
Next time the kids get bumped or bruised you’ll be armed with the cutest personal healthcare companion. Bandaids included of course as a great human alternative to scotch tape for times when you spring a leak.
