DIY Designer Fabric Band-Aids

With a toddler in the house, we always have an available stash of band-aids. Various sizes, colors and prints (Princesses & Hello Kitty are a must)! Lately my lil gal has been obsessed with them. OBSESSED! Which sort of goes hand-in-hand with her sticker fascination.

Since the fun printed band-aids aren't cheap, I decided to kick up the basic version with some fun & vibrant fabrics!

What you'll need:
Fabric
Adhesive band-aids (I used the fabric version)
Double sided tape
Scissors

Unwrap the band-aid & place two strips of double sided adhesive tape on the top (fabric side)

Lay out the fabric, reverse side facing you & press the band-aid on to it. Cut around the edges.

That's it! Momma-made band-aids!
Easy peasy & super cute!

Since the adhesive tape probably won't let the band-aid breathe, these might be best for small owies or faux scraps & bumps!

  4. Designer bandaids. Clever mom! Sometimes the love is more important -- especially for the faux wounds! I would love it if you would come link up with Busy Monday (open Monday through Thursdays) at A Pinch of Joy, a linky party for ideas that make life better, easier and more fun!

    1. Ok, super inspired I made a few, I call them quilters band aids :) Anyway I ended up cutting 6 1/8 inch holes in the tape to help with the breathing a bit. I also had some double side dress tape (sewing notion) that was the exact lenth.

      I hope to blog about it tomorrow, I will give you a link!

      Thanks again for the inspiration, too fun...hope I cut myself soon, not to bad maybe just a small paper cut :)
