Road Trip Case

After finishing up my Maker's Tote, I decided to make my daughters matching "Road Trip Cases" (by Noodlehead) for our upcoming vacation. I'm very jealous of the results -- I want my own! I had to hide these cases while I was making them because my girls wanted them so badly. I successfully finished them up and stocked them full of crayons/papers/stickers before our first road trip.

This was my first time sewing with vinyl (for the clear pocket) and it was definitely a learning curve. I used tissue paper because it kept sticking to my sewing machine. But after a few times, I finally got the hang of it.

Maker's Tote

I bought the Maker's Tote pattern from Anna of Noodlehead awhile ago but didn't get my things together to make it until recently. I wish I hadn't of waited so long because I love this little bag! I'll be honest and say that bags are typically not my specialty. That's probably because of the odd sewing angles and specialty notions that I don't keep on hand. But I'm happy to report that this bag sewed up nicely and I'm very pleased with the results -- enough so that I'm already eyeing my next bag project.

Fabric is a mix of Cotton & Steel, Carolyn Friedlander, and things I've had in my stash for ages.
