Five Crafty Projects to Make for Stocking Your Natural First-Aid Kit

fabric-covered band-aidsUnfortunately, those unicorn band-aids that obsess my younger daughter don’t have the stickiest glue to adhere them, and when my older daughter had surgery on an infected lymph node…well, they certainly don’t make adorable giant bandages to cover incisions.

Fortunately, with this fabric-covered bandage tutorial from The Pink Couch, my girlies are nevertheless able to have super-sticky band-aids that also sport their favorite colors, and even favorite characters (thank you, My Little Pony novelty fabric!).

And no, band-aids that match your first-aid kit that match your handkerchiefs that match your rice pillow would NOT be overkill.

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
