DIY TPN Backpack

Hi everyone! I missed you all last week. We took a couple of days away in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. And get this, we stayed at a haunted hotel! I’ve got photos to share from that soon. This week I’m sharing a post I’ve been so excited about, how I easily transform any everyday backpack into one that will work for TPN! Let’s get this backpack party started!

Materials needed:

  • Backpack of your choice- Ideally with a wider opening if possible! I also prefer to have several pockets on my pack.
  • 9 inches of 1 in. wide nylon webbing (sold at most craft stores by the yard, I recommend getting a little extra to have some room to play with)
  • 2 inches of 3/4 in. wide Velcro (I bought this by the yard, and got a 6 inch piece just to be safe)
  • scissors
  • sewing thread
  • embroidery thread
  • sewing needle
  • pins
  • ruler
  • lighter

Organization Station!

Let’s talk organization!

There are so many ways to organize the things in our lives, and it’s so nice to finally get to a place where you love the way your things are situated in your home.

When it comes to my TPN and tube supplies, I wouldn’t say I’m 100% satisfied with the way they are organized right now.  But I will say that I am much closer to liking the role they play in my living space than I have been in the past.

I used to have a tall set of plastic drawers in my room.  While it works, I am very picky about the aesthetic of my surroundings.  I didn’t love the constant reminder of the medical supply section in my room.  These might be a perfect solution to your organization though!  Or perhaps you have a big walk-in closet that the tower of drawers could fit into and still be hidden.  I’m unable to find the exact tower of drawers I had, but these are very similar.

I’d also love to share with you how I currently have my supplies set up.  They’re much more discrete and hidden so that they aren’t in my face all day every day.
