- A piece of felt
- A piece of fabric
- Needle and thread
- A button
- A sanitary towel
Using a sanitary towel as a template, draw two squares. They should be about a centimetre larger on each side than the pad. I'd accidentally donated the pads I'd bought for myself, so I used post-it notes...
Draw a flap shape on the edge of one of the squares (snigger). Cut out both pattern pieces.
Cut a piece of felt using the larger pattern piece, and a square of fabric using the other.
Fold over one edge of the fabric square, then fold it over again to make a neat hem. Sew it down (I used my sewing machine, but you can hand stitch it using whatever stitch you like).
With the hem and flap pointing up, put your two pieces of fabric together, wrong sides facing. Sew across the bottom and the sides, keeping close to the edge.
Turn it the right way around.
Cut a small button hole.
Sew on a button. Voila! Your sannies will never be cold again...
Here are some we made earlier!
