Virkad tamponggömma!

The red flower of shame.

 

A hide-out for tampons with a "flower" (the red, of shame) as a lid. :o)

 

When I was studying women's studies years ago we red the ethnologist Denise Malmberg's book The red flower of shame?. The book is, as you've might guessed, about menstruation and women (in swedish tradition, "the decades before and after the turn of the century 1900"). That inspired me to make the lid as a red flower instead of a something like blood drops. :o)

 

As you can see the little hide-out can hold four tampons. Very handy!

 

Cool chicks of course buy menstrual cups instead, I bought mine here: menskoppen.se/ . :o)
