Yesterday I finished another unusual sewing project, I made a new case for my daughter Sara’s blood glucose meter. She has had type 1 diabetes since she was four years old, she is 17 now. I love it when one of my kids asks me to make something for them.
It turned out pretty good. She chose a denim print for the outer fabric and a pink polka dot fabric for the lining. She also told me what features she wanted, like a handle.
I had a medium woven interfacing on the outer fabric and a thin batting on the lining. I also had interfacing on the inside pockets.
I sewed the outside, lining and zipper together in one seam and covered the seam with bias tape. One of the pockets are gathered at the bottom and has elastic in the top edge.
A big advantage of a homemade one is that it can be washed in the washing machine. A good thing, since it goes everywhere with her.
After one day of using it, she is very happy with it.
If anyone is interested, I will make a pattern and a tutorial here on the blog. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Happy sewing and take care!

I’d love a pattern for the glucometer bag. I’m type II.
I would love the BGL Meter Case so I could make one for my husband who is diabetic.
I’d love a pattern and tutorial, I am type II.
Wondering if this pattern ever got published? Love this!
Sorry, no it didn’t get published.
Would love the pattern for this, so I can make one for my daughter in law.
