How to Make a Sanitary Pad Purse
Medium-weight cotton fabric scraps for the sanitary pad purse outer, lining, and pocket ( here I have used fabrics in two different prints).
Medium-weight fusible interfacing- 1/4 yard.
A small piece of Velcro.
Cut your pieces with the following measurements:
Sanitary pad purse outer and lining- 5.5” x 8.75”
Interfacing- Same measurements as above.
Pocket outer and lining- 7.5” x 5.5”.
Pocket interfacing- same measurements as the above.
First, we make the pocket.
Next, we make 2 pleats on the pocket.
