Custom First Aid Kit finished!!

I just finished the binder/cover for the custom first aid kit I'm making for my daughter. All the steps are photographed, and the tutorial will go up in the next day or so. In the meantime, here are pictures!

The design on the front came from Urban Threads and is a Hopi healing symbol. I thought it was appropriate for a first aid kit!

The binder unzips to lay completely flat. Here it's shown with the two inserts already completed; I have to make several more by tomorrow (which is why the tutorial will be delayed!)

There are a few things I would do differently if I had to do it over again. But, all in all, it came out quite nicely, and I'm sure my daughter will love it!


  1. Hi Welmoed,
    It looks great!

    do you have to have a red or blue cross with the words First Aid on first aid kits over there? I think it is a requirement here so that anyone can grab the kit in a hurry not confusing it for something else.
    I googled first aid kit - look at images - and you can see the sort of thing I mean.

    you have really put a lot of thought to the construction. Well done.

  2. I first learned of Urban Threads from your blog, and they've become my favorite design site. Thanks, Welmoed!


I would love to hear your thoughts... Please share!
