We’re planning a trip and I’ve been thinking about what we could use or would need for traveling. In searching for some (preferably free) patterns for making bags, wallets and such I came across a few that seemed like they might be useful.
Shoe bags seem like they might be a good idea, if there’s time to make some. If not, I’ll use the usual plastic grocery bags that we get at the stores.
A passport cover also seems like a good idea. I like this travel wallet better, though because it has a long strap. I can wear it under my jumper (pinafore) if need be. Also it could carry more than just the passports.
I probably wouldn’t make this bag organizer, but it’s a good idea for traveling.
This one strap bag looks like it might a good carry on bag.
This travel duffel looks useful too, but the pattern is not free. It also looks like it could be easily overloaded – for me. :-)
I’ve been needing a new wallet and have been thinking that making my own might result in something lighter weight. Since my purse has become too heavy lately (don’t ask me how) I think it’s probably time to knuckle down and find a way to really lighten it. This was the only free wallet pattern that I really liked, but it still seems a bit fussy. (You can download the PDF.) I’m not sure about it yet. (Yeah, the fabric in the illustration is not my style!)
How much of this will I get done before we leave? Quite possibly not any, but it does give me ideas and there a couple of things at least that I’d really like to try to make. :-)
