This is my first challenge, and I don't know if this qualifies, but I decided to go with it.

My boyfriend is a type one diabetic, so he has to take a shot of insulin after he eats. He was sick of running home since he's a guy and has no convenient way of carrying his insulin pen, so I now carry some for him. And I needed a nifty little cozy for the pen and the needle tops, so I decided to make one for the challenge. I made this last night, and I baked the polymer clay button this morning. This was my first use of button holes, and I messed up a little, but I think it turned out good.





I know the button so doesn't match the fabric, but I never match, so it fit me^^
Thanks for looking!! ^^

SO CUTE!  I would love one of these for my insulin pens... the top is forever falling off in my purse.  Great idea!

Great idea!  Carrying an insulin pen was such a pain in the neck.  Now that I have a pump I don't have to worry about it, but when I did that would have been great!  It's much nicer than the store bought one I had.

It's so much fun to do things to add sparkle to your diabetes supplies! I got a pump skin (its like a cell phone cover for your pump) and its amazing Cheesy

It's very cool. And why do the girlfriends always have to carry the crap? My friend Ala always has a stash of her boyfriend's cystic fibrosis drugs in her bag (he's only been taking them three times a day EVERY SINGLE DAY OF HIS LIFE, why should he remember to put them in his bag?). But the bit that really gets my attention is the button - it looks like a like a peppermint! A little bit ironic?

Crochet uses a hook. Pirates have hooks, and they are cool. So crochet is cool because of the hook.
