Wow!  Thanks for all the compliments, guys Smiley

Hellga:  The pill bottles came from these little jar/bottle kits I found at the drug store.  They only had enough of them in purple, so that was the inspiration for the color scheme.  They're about 1.5" across and .75" deep.  I tested them, and they held 24 Advil comfortably.  Since Grandma takes about 12 daily pills of different sizes, I thought (hoped!) they would be sufficient.  We'll see...

Great job and so very thoughtful!  You could prolly make a killing at your local retirement communities with this if Grandma approves the design!  So thoughtful of you too, I just love old folks Grin

This is genuinely a great idea, something I've never seen before.  It's so pretty, ladylike, and useful.  My grandma hates those plastic trays too, and I know she'd love this.

Beautiful work!  My g'ma taught me how to sew & as a result I love giving her handmade gifts.  Thanks for providing a present idea for me!

That is such a nice and thoughtful gift, and it's also way better than those flip top plastic things.

I love that idea!!!

I'm only 25 but due to some health stuff I have to take a handful of pills and vitamins everday. Travelling can be such a pain with all the bottles, and those platic trays are SO ugly. This is such a pretty and pratical way to get around that!

Thank you for sharing, I want to make one for myself now! Smiley

I love this and really want to make one for my mom and myself, but I'm having trouble finding the containers around here.  Anyone have any ideas on maybe an internet source?

You did a great job!  This is very nice and functional to boot Smiley

You mentioned that it was hard to sew once the plastic inserts were put in.  You might want to try Timtex or Peltex.  My local quilt shops carry the Timtex and JoAnn's carries the Peltex.  It is a heavyweight stiffener that you can sew through. Peltex is less expensive than Timtex, though it didn't seem to be as thick/stiff.  It will make a softer sided container as opposed to the plastic, but it should work. 

Just a thought.
