I’ll be honest…I’m not a big fan of my “time of the month”. But it’s a part of life, and I try and make the best of it! Plus, I love being a woman- even if it means getting my period every month! Something I’ve learned over the years is to always be prepared. I carry a little period survival kit in my purse, which includes U by Kotex® brand products. Today I wanted to share with you all how to make your very own Period Survival Kit +a DIY No Sew Pouch Tutorial!
I love CVS! They carry a large range of U by Kotex® products. I love thatU by Kotex® designs all their products to help make your period easier and more manageable. I always make sure to pick up my favorites and store some in my Period Survival Kit, so I am always prepared!
Check out my favorite U by Kotex® products below:
U by Kotex® Cleanwear® Pads
I love that they have a unique 3D Capture Core* and an Xpress DRI* cover for crazy fast absorption to help stop leaks.
U by Kotex® Barely There Liners
They are super flexible and moves any way you do.
U by Kotex® Sleek® Tampons
I love the anti-slip rubbery grip!
DIY No Sew Pouch Tutorial
- Fabric Glue
- Fabric (make sure it is strong since you’ll be storing things in your pouch! I used a canvas material)
Cut fabric the width of the zipper. I used a 7″ zipper. The length depends on how big you want your pouch. I didn’t make mine too big, just big enough to store essentials. Whatever length you want, make sure to double it since you’ll be folding it in half to create the pouch.
Create a seam on each end of the fabric. Glue down each seam and wait for it to dry.
Glue on zipper. Make sure to align it nicely with the seams you created.
Let it dry.
Open up the zipper, while the sides are still unglued. Then glue down the sides of the pouch. Your bag should still be inside out. Wait for it to dry.
Here is the finished product! Ok, so now that we made the DIY No Sew Pouch, we need to fill it up to make our Period Survival Kit. Here are the items I find essential to have:
- U by Kotex® Cleanwear® Pads (depending on how heavy or light my period is, I might have a tampons or liners instead)
- Tissues (I don’t know about you, but I am super emotional when I’m PMSing and on my period.)
- Hand sanitizer
- Pain relievers (One word – CRAMPS)
Oh! I usually carry some chocolate with me as well. YUM! What are your period essentials?
Be sure to check out the U by Kotex Social Hub for more period fun! (Not that periods are fun, but we have to try and make the best of them!) Also, we could all use a Daily Break, so be sure to head on over there too!
