So we got us an ATV and decided we need a First aid kit to go with it.
Looking at Walmart and not happy with the selection of Premade First aid Kits I decided to make my own to my liking.
I did not use a pattern for the bag, kinda just had something invisioned and went for it.
I made sure to make a little spot for everything I wanted in there and layed it all out.
I got a new toy (embroidery machine Singer Futura CE-250) and I embroidered the Ambulance and words "First Aid" onto the front. It has a Zipper going around 3 sides so I can lay it open flat. I decided on the Camo Fabric, since We have a Camo colored ATV. I also used some Plastic Canvas on the inside to make it a bit more stable. It also has a handle to carry it around.

Let me know what you think Smiley

I thought the leaf on there was a horse, so I was like "Why's there an ambulance on the pony??"
I figured it out :]
Good job, though.

oh I just attached the zipper by sandwiching it between the 2 layers of fabric. It took me a while (almost 2 hours) until I had it exactly the way I wanted it to be, but it was well worth my time.
