DIY Play Felt Bandages

DIY felt bandaides, bandagesIs there a doctor in the house? Save your bandaids for the real boo boos and craft up some soft reusable felt play bandages. 

Help them heal pretend owies, build empathy and remove fear of the doctors office, all while having imaginative screen free fun. Whether you’ve got a budding M.D in your house or just an empathetic stuffy owner you’ll want to craft up a bunch of these simple DIY felt bandaids.Friends, find you someone who loves you like a kid loves band aids.

These felt bandages sew up with two simple stitching styles and 1- 9″ x 12″ felt sheet will  make 7-8 bandages, making them inexpensive and fun crafts. They can be adjusted to be bigger but these are the perfect scale for fingers of all sizes.

You will need: per bandage

3″ x 4″ felt scrap per bandage- Beige felt – I used Peanut Butter* or printed felt – I used Pink Daisy and Turquoise Rosebud *

Velcro or Hook and Loop to match your felt: I used Sand, Bunny, Pale Turquoise

*Matching thread

Cut 

2 felt bandage shapes, and 1 bandage center from felt

Cut velcro or hook and loop into smaller squares or ovals if you prefer. (see template)

Sew center to one bandage with an applique stitch with either a running stitch or applique stitch and matching thread.

Sew hook and loop to end of felt bandages. Match them up so the hook and loop are on opposite sides.

The hook and loop should be on opposing sides.

Overcast stitch the felt bandages together. And that’s all there is to it!

Happy healing
