Being a teenager is a fun, exciting time! Driving, shopping, and doing all the things that almost-adults can do … like going to Downtown Los Angeles. Katie's the stage manager and costume designer for most of the plays at her High School so she makes lots of trips to DTLA to source fabric, notions, and more for the shows and her competitions. It's her senior year so time is getting short … there are only 2 shows left and then she's off to college! Last weekend we went fabric shopping in DTLA before meeting up with a friend for dinner. Katie carried her notebook in a cute fringe clutch and wore one her favorite bomber jacket. But it's what you don't see that's even better: maxi pads and a bottle of Advil® Menstrual Pain (use as directed). I created a secret compartment clutch period kit that is super easy for everyone to make, even teen girls, because there is no sewing involved.

Preparing your teen with a period kit

The last thing any girl wants to worry about is getting a headache, cramps, and having back pain if her monthly arrives unexpected. Luckily, Aunt Flo wasn't visiting on this trip we took to DTLA but I've always taught my kids to be prepared. Wherever we go and whatever life sends her way, Katie's prepared with a period kit that has everything she needs to make it through the day. You never know when a friend might benefit from your being prepared too! Maxi pads, tampons, and Advil® Menstrual Pain are essentials in a period kit – you'll need to make sure that it's filled with your daughter's favored feminine products and products that work.

Our period kits all include Advil® Menstrual Pain because it targets the cause of menstrual cramps & discomfort to relieve pain for up to 6 hours without caffeine or Antihistamines. Who needs drowsiness or an upset stomach from caffeine? Not a high school girl, that's for sure! Walmart is a convenient stop on the way to and from school where we can stop in any time and grab this pain reliever from the pain aisle, without a prescription. It's a good day when you can be out having fun or going about your day and your daughter says, ” What pain?”!

DIY Period Kit for School – Secret Compartment Clutch Purse

Period success all comes back to being prepared. But the items a girl needs to be prepared are really bulky! I knew there had to be a better way of being prepared, discreetly and confidently.

Last year I made a notebook cover with a secret compartment for a period kit. That post is still my most-visited post and the period kit video tutorial is one of my most-watched videos of all time. With schools not allowing girls to bring their backpacks into the bathroom, it is more and more challenging for girls to be prepared in a discreet way. That's why we created this DIY clutch that has a secret compartment for pads and Advil® Menstrual Pain. And you can make it with NO sewing involved. YEAH! The whole project is GLUED together with fabric glue so anyone can make it with basic household tools, even if they have never sewn anything before. Plus it looks pretty cute too.

After you make this, she'll be able to strut her stuff in style and not have a worry in the world about pain during her cycle. Or she can make it herself! Make the whole process fun and personalized for her. Go to Walmart and choose her favorite feminine products and Advil® Menstrual Pain together. Then head to the fabric aisle and choose fabric and trims in colors she'll like. You can design the entire project together, following our instructions, but customized with your favorite colors and patterns. Here's what you'll need to get started:

Supplies:

  • fabric glue (for the best results, I used Aleene's Felt & Foam Glue and Aleene's Fabric Fusion)
  • 2 sheets of 12×18 felt (you can get this by the yard at Walmart)
  • 1/4 yard of cotton fabric
  • trim (can use fringe like we did, ribbon, studs, or no trim at all)
  • magnetic snaps kit – these are held in place with prongs, not sewn, so make sure you choose this type of clasp

Tools:

  • chalk
  • scissors
  • pins or sewing clips (I used sewing clips because I sew but straight pins work well too)
  • clothes iron and ironing board
  • ruler (can be a clear grid ruler, a regular ruler, or tape measure)
  • pliers

One you have all the supplies together, it's time to make the clutch. You'll need 30 minutes to an hour for construction, depending on your skill level. Then you'll need another 3-4 hours for the glue to dry. if you know how to sew, you can sew this project instead of gluing, avoiding the dry time.

Make carrying the clutch a habit so she is always prepared no matter where she is or what she's doing. She could be shopping in the garment district in Los Angeles, having a grand time, and no one has to know she has a period kit. It's just a clutch to everyone else.

  1. I well remember those days! I made good use of whatever pain killers I could find. When I wasn’t at school or work, I was cuddled up with a heating pad. I would definitely have tried this product. Love the clever clutch you’ve created, too. Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty #ccbg
