How to sew an easy boo boo bag for your children- in the shape of a Pokeball!

I love the idea of making a boo boo bag for my own kids or as a gift for others. It makes the whole “boo boo” and ice pack experience a bit less miserable, for sure. Whenever someone tells me to “just” put an ice pack on a toddler’s bumps and bruises, I laugh and I laugh and I laugh. They don’t sit still well and you’d think you were killing them. This should make it more fun!I’ll mention that I made mine with fleece. I would recommend a regular red and white cotton or knit fabric for the main portion of the bag. It’s a bit thinner and I think the coolness will convey through the bag better. The fleece definitely felt a bit warm still, despite being put in the freezer.
Supplies listed below may include affiliate links to the products.
- Fleece/Felt/Knit Fabric (or other non fraying fabric) for the black and white details on the Pokeball
- Red/White fabrics of your choice for the main bag. A thinner fabric may help keep the bag cooler- the fleece was pretty warm, even when put through the freezer.
- Rice and funnel
- Sewing machine
- Needle and thread to hand sew
