I would like to try to make a cheerful but practical little case to hold the supplies one needs for testing their blood sugar - the monitor, lancet and packet of little strips. I have searched for ideas and found one on a great blog site but she didn't actually sew a case from scratch - she ingeniously added a lovely cloth covering to an existing case. Is anyone aware of others who have attempted this? I wish I could see pictures and read tips for holding the things together (zippers make me nervous so I wonder about a fold-over type set-up with velcro?). I am inspired, but I would feel better able to start if I could compare ideas with others. Any leads would be super-appreciated!

I know you don't want to deal with zippers but I instantly thought of this tutorial:
You can make the inside just how you want it! I googeled some and found this:
But if you're really set on Velcro I also found this:

Good luck!

What kind of size does said case need to be? From what I remember of seeing my brother's it would be fairly similar to the case I made for my external hard drive...

I did put a zipper in it, but totally cheater style. All told I think it took me about 2 hours, a fat quarter, some fleece scraps, and an 18" zipper. Finished size is aprox 7" tall, 3.5" wide, and 1" thick.

I'll try to get a tutorial written up, but I'm right in the middle of DD's summer wardrobe and currently knocked up to the tune of 8 months so it may take a while LOL!

I do know I based it off of a trapper keeper if that helps!
