Pot-Holder First Aid Kit

This week for our annual church Young Women Camp, we're making sure our girls are prepared. One thing we had each of them make is a first aid kit. They're super easy to make and I think they're pretty cute, too.

For each kit you'll need:

a square potholder 
(we got ours at the dollar store)

6-10 snack sized ziplock bags
(use what you need according to the amount of supplies you want to go in it)

first aid supplies
(small or individually wrapped items are good--ointment, bandaids, gauze squares, latex gloves, hard candies, Q-tips, matches, duct tape, medical tape, ibuprofen, etc.)

a button

sewing machine, thread, & straight pins

You see how to do this, right? Well here are some tips:
  • Before you sew the bags on, make sure the loop on the potholder is on the side that the zippers are on so you can button it closed.
  • The bags are really slick, so pin them into place at the sides where you start and end sewing.  
  • Use a button that is big enough to hold it closed but small enough to fit though the loop.

It's pretty fun to flip through and see all of the supplies. I bet this would be great for other things too--a travel sewing kit, travel jewelry organizer, organizing buttons...

What else would you use one of these for?

  6. 5 Points to Keep In Mind Before Enrolling For a first aid course in Brisbane
    A benign scenario can become a health crisis in a matter of moments. First aid contains the measures that you want to choose to attend a medical crisis. The kind of first aid to be supplied is dependent upon how intense the problem is. Injuries and sudden illnesses might lead to the demand for first aid.

    First aid courses teach you methods as straightforward as employing a bandage to a injured knee and as complicated as using and AED (Automated External Defibrillator) to someone whose heart has stopped.

    It's our responsibility to assist people in need and also taking a class in first aid is a step towards this. Before you register yourself at a first aid course there aren't many things you need to remember.

    • Thoroughly undergo all of the topics which will be dealt with from the first aid program. There are several distinct forms of first aid classes but should majorly contain topics like security and security, injury management, patient investigation, injury recognition and crisis identification.

    It's useless to perform a class which won't give you appropriate certificate as a trained first aid professional.

    • be sure that you look at all of the available times and programs of this program. Some first aid classes just allow classroom coaching and if you're interested in distance classes you might be disappointed afterwards.

    • Understand the detailed breakdown of their charges for the very first aid lessons available. Make sure you pick the one which is quite economical and offers you the ideal course.

    • The major point to remember is your proficiency and instruction of the school. If the course that's educated and professional teachers and coaches it will make a major difference at the level and caliber of their very first aid program.

    Certified first aid classes are provided in schools, hospitals and local government agencies. You could even enroll in an internet first aid program. A fantastic first aid course can instruct somebody to take care of situations as little as slight wounds and accidents and as large as heart attacks and strokes which might happen in the home, work or on the street. A first aid trained practitioner can take care of any type of health emergency no matter the state of the individual. A first aid course gives you the necessary knowledge, ability and confidence to deal with any emergency situation in the best way possible and so save a individual's life...
