The band-aids use velcro on the ends to make them stay on & stitching a little pad in the middle makes them look realistic. I folded & stitched the edges of a long strip of white for the roll bandage. I did the same for the blood pressure cuff, but added in the inflation part before stitching it shut and added 2 inch wide velcro to the ends. The stethoscope has pipe cleaners in it, so it bends like a real one. The x-ray was a little tricky, since I freehanded it with scissors, but sewing it on one piece of felt and then putting another on the back was easy. For the medical bag I used clipped corners in the bottom & folded in side edges to make it have the doctor-ish shape. My favorite item though has got to be the cast.
I measured my kid's arms for length & width and added 2 inches & cut that out in felt. I made a document with fonts that looked like handwriting and printed that out on a fabric sheet. I stitched the two fabrics together and then stitched it into a tube shape. I'm kind of amazed at how real this thing looks. Hopefully this is as close to ever having a cast as we'll get. I threw in some craft tongue depressors to complete the set. Now we've got the answer to "Is there a doctor in the house?".
