Heyyyy DIYers! It's Madi, and it's almost time for BACK-TO-SCHOOL! This DIY School Emergency/Survival Kit is PERFECT to make your school life easier! Let's get started!

DIY No-Sew Pouch:
What you'll need:
- 1 piece of "6x10" Fabric
- Hot glue gun
- Ribbon

1. Fold the 6x10 fabric in half BACKWARDS, so it's like two pieces of 3x5 fabrics, but connected.
2. Glue the sides together, BUT NOT THE TOP!
3. Turn it outside-in.

You are Done with the pouch! To close the pouch up after things are put inside it, use a ribbon to tie up the excess fabric.

Now that you have your DIY pouch, I've broken up what goes IN the pouch into a few different groups to make it easier to read and understand.

  • Gum or Mints
  • Travel-sized pack of tissues
  • Travel-sized tooth brush
  • Travel-sized tooth paste
  • Sample size of perfume
  • Travel-sized deodorant
  • Travel-sized hand sanitizer (DON'T USE BATH AND BODY WORKS HAND SANITIZER- IT GIVES PEOPLE HEADACHES, AND THEN PEOPLE WILL THINK YOU STINKKKK! I know this from personal experience!) 
  • Feminine Products of your choice
  • Makeup +brushes of choice (Don't bring tons of makeup +brushes though!)
  • Lip balm
  • Travel-sized hand lotion
  • Oil Blotting Sheets (helps after PE!)
  • Hairties + Bobby pins
  • Travel-sized hair comb or brush
  • Small, compact mirror 
  • Cell phone (OR if you don't have a phone, bring a small, emergency contact book, because you can always use the school's phone...)
  • Cash ($10 || $5 in dollar bills, $5 in quarters)
  • Granola Bar (You might get hungry!)
YOU are finished with your Back to School Survival/Emergency Kit!

I hope you enjoyed this DIY! Stay tuned for the next DIY!
