My Creative Space: have sewing will travel

My creative space this week has been all about travelling. Suddenly I see all sorts of crafting opportunities from wash bags to shoe storage, from camera cases to travel sewing kits.

I saw a most fantastic camera case on one of my daily Etsy Finds emails, I experimented in replicating it to some extent, kind of worked, kind of didn't. I'll show it to you later.

I really can't go away without taking a little bit of sewing with me, really I can't. So I have just made this travel sewing pouch. Its a little fold up number with two felt pieces for pins and needles and two pockets for other little bits of equipment.

My scissors are quite sharp on the tip so I sewed a little felt pouch for them to sit in. A little bit of embroidery taken from the fabric pattern makes it look fancier than it really is.

There you go, sewing and travel all wrapped up.

For more creative spaces head on over to Kootoyoo.

I was the same when I went away to Tasmania a couple of weeks ago, I had to take some sewing with me. The pouch you made looks great and big enough for your bits and pieces. Happy travelling.:)

That is one snazzy sewing pouch. Wish I was that organised!

I agree, snazzy stuff! Just sitting here calculating how many craft pouches I could justify making and how I would tackle the one for the granny blanket in 167 bits...(I do tend to go a bit overboard).

Way classie than the zip lock bag that I haul around. And I bet those sharp little scissors won't easily make an escape route?
