I love going on tour…from the comfort of my very own home.
This time I sewed a few items from the new ebook that will be released today: Time To Travel!
I was lucky enough to test the first one. I had so much fun making it, I made two.
Ready, Set, Go Wallet
This is a great little gift idea, and of course BOTH of my girls wanted one. The great thing is, I made this one using an old pair of jeans, and some sweet quilting cotton. Look at that fox. I love him, so.
This one I made from mattress ticking fabric found in the utility section of Joanns.
But the inside is PRETZELS!! I think this one is my favorite.
As you can see, there is a place to hold dollars (real or play) and plenty of compartments for cards and photos.
I did this one with wider bias tape, but really the pattern is flexible. Before this, I had never sewn a wallet before. It was quite addicting.
Next, I sewed this up for The Bee:
The Swansea Bag
I had a little fun with mixing this one up a bit by adding extra large curtain grommets (these things are HUGE) and jumbo furniture piping.
Even though the pattern comes with detailed instructions on how to do French seams throughout the whole bag, I also chose to line it with lime green sock monkey fabric for a contrast. The wood grained outer fabric was a little too washed out, so I thought it could use a pop of color.
This one is the adult-sized bag, but there is also a smaller kid-sized bag in the pattern.
As you can see, it is a perfect sleepover/camp bag for my 5’5″ girl.
I think the next one I sew up will be in a heavier canvas to hold up to the outdoor adventures we will have in the Summer!
