Gone Camping

You won't hear or see much from me this week...

I am unplugged and will be (hopefully) sitting by a creek, watching the day pass by or enjoying a long walk and taking naps.

On Friday I I did this...

I didn't really have the time to make this travel sewing bag, but I did it anyway!

 Zippers and I are barely on an acquaintance basis and it took two tries to get it right. The first one was too short so I had to go to the store to find a longer one... it wasn't really much longer, but at least it separated, allowing the bag to open flat.

There are pockets galore and I used double stick tape to attach a large sheet magnet on the back of my small cutting mat to keep my scissors and needle handy, in addition to being able to use magnets to keep some of the pattern pieces readily available. And there is plenty of room to take a small bag full of fabric. 😃

I'll check in really quick sometime Thursday or Friday as we reset and prep for our Family Cabin Camp Weekend!

Leave a comment about what you are doing this week!

I look forward to hearing from you...

  1. What’s great bag! Happy camping, enjoy your quiet time!

  2. Do you have a pattern for this cute sewing bag?

  3. That will be a handy bag that you will use often, I'll bet! This week I'm working on a challenge quilt due August 1st, but today I'm thinking I might work on something else. My house needs cleaning, my laundry needs doing, but the quilting is calling . . .

  4. Hope you have tons of fun camping! My hubby and I are leaving in a couple hours for a little camping trip with some friends. Looking forward to getting away for a bit.
    I have all my blocks done and will send you a picture when I get home.
