you can make a similar item need surgical sponges and chitosan. a lot more comfortable for the person getting worked on than getting stuffed with gauze. ALWAYS ALWAYS do two things use the victims battle dressing not yours, before starting any work remove any weapons from reach of the patient, stuffing deep wounds with gauze to stop bleeding is extremely uncomfortable, let alone if it does not stop the hemorrhaging and you need to remove and repack it

If making your own make sure each has EXACTLY same amount of sponges so you can count out when sewing up so no need to go back in for a septic nightmare of a sponge.
