Her idea was really quite cute. She insisted that I keep it, and the extra buttons to make more. I let one of the people I was working with take it home, so I had to make one to share with you today.
It is so fast to make! Just start with an ordinary potholder.
Next layer 8 - 10 ziplock type sandwich bags on the backside of the potholder. Alternate which side the zipper is on. (You could use snack size, but I was afraid they wouldn't be roomy enough.)
|Notice how the zippers alternate, one on the left the next on the right.|
I clamped my bags with clothespins, then drew a line in the center. Just make sure your bags are straight and that they are not hanging off any edge.
You can fill the baggies with whatever you will need: medicine, bandaids, pencil and paper, sewing kit, wet wipes, change.
This could be a great little quiet activity for kids-- fill the baggies with kid-friendly things like crayons, gum, tiny books, etc.
