As I have been starting to prepare for my trip to Austin for Quilt Con next week, I figured one thing that I was really in need of was a little travel sew kit.

I found this great tutorial that was so easy and clear to follow.  She has such a great overall blog that I was so happy to find through my google search.

I love a little project that is quick and easy.  The girls and I spent the afternoon yesterday cleaning my  our sewing room and organizing all the fabric.  It felt so great to finally have some clean spaces to work on that I was inspired to stay up till midnight last night nearly finishing this little project.

I really love how it turned out and it was so great to use up some more of my favorite scraps.

Now I have plans to make some for all the girls teachers for end of the year gifts.  For once I may actually be ahead of the game!!! 🙂

Now to figure out a new handmade tote for all my larger supplies needed for workshops I’ll be taking at Quilt Con.  I’m getting really excited!  Have a great week all!

I’m linking up with Nicole’s Keep Calm And Craft On Tuesday over at Frontier Dreams!
