I sew for my Grandaughter who has diabetes and has an insulin pump. I would like to make a pack or sack or whatever it is called to match or compliment her outfits. Its a good way to use scraps. It looks easy, but I have fooled around and haven't quite been able to come up with something that works and is cute as well. Does anyone know of a pattern or patterns for an Insulin Pump Pack?

I haven't seen a pattern, but as a fellow Type I, think it is a great idea! You might need to interface (stiff) the fabric to support the weight. Even though pumps are small, they are a little weighty. I don't wear a pump (but think they are wonderful) mainly due to the bulky nature with close fitting clothing. (Men have no problem...they are used to having stuff attached at the belt!)

Let us know if you come up with a clever idea. I would start with making a pattern from an existing case. They seem to be mostly hard cases attached with clips (like cell phones and pagers).

There are a large variety of great pump holders available. I used to have one made from swimsuit material that I wore just below or just above the knee. I have one that attaches to the side of my bra. My pump mostly lives in a clip case that I attach to my waistbands. With a previous pump I had semi-clear cases in several colors so I could color coordinate my pump with what I was wearing that day.

A quick search showed there are a lot things available to hold a pump since I last checked a couple of years ago. One place even had a tank top designed to go under close fitting clothes. My pump is now feeling neglected and expects at least one new case.

I don't know of any patterns. There are 2 requirements in a pump case, IMHO. It needs to securely hold the pump and it needs to securely attach the pump.

The fabric pump cases I have seen are a simple sturdy fabric with a velcrod flap or zipper closue. They have either a hook, a belt loop or an attached belt.

Yes, you are right Joanne, the pump and cases are much better than previous years (like all things diabetic!)...I should have added it's more of a (as they say in the med biz) "tether" issue with me...but I didn't want to get off topic. Doesn't bother all people, but does me, for some reason. I may give it a try again some day. I am a big supporter of pumps. Just didn't work for my lifestyle...but they are wonderful improvements to the quality of life for most diabetics who use them. I do very well with my old-fashioned Humalog pens! (A1C-wise)
