I just recently bought my first menstrual cup (My First Menstrual Cup sounds like a rejected "Top Ten Gifts For Teens" idea) and it came with a hilariously small amount of packaging.  Seriously, it was just chucked in a bubble mailer with a slip that basically said "For care and usage instructions, please consult the Internet."  I didn't want to toss it in a drawer and leave it all naked and dust-gathering at the end of each cycle, so I decided to sew and embellish a little baggie for it. 

It just cracks me up that this is made with high-quality Kona muslin, considering what it's housing.

I sketched out the lettering and the big circle by hand before stitching; everything else is free-form.  If you're curious, I bought a Fleurcup, but I think Drip Pan is much funnier, more accurate, and far less creepy (I don't like comparisons of vaginas to things like flowers.  It's just a vagina.  You don't hear guys waxing philosphical about their penes, right?  Or maybe they do, I don't know.).

Anyway, the picture!  My stitches aren't rumpled or puckering; I just failed to iron the fabric before (or after) sewing.

On the one hand, I commend your creativity & the quality of your execution!

On the other hand...the analogy of "drip pan" makes me never, ever want to use a cup, ever, even moreso than before.

lol For reals, though, nice work. Smiley
