ready for the trip!

here is a digest of what I've been making for the trip.

start with a passport/ticket holder





I had one from a travel company, but it was cheaply made not-so-good-looking one.
so decided to make up one!
the pattern is based on the 'original' one I had.
it has two big pockets, a pouch to put your passports, a slit for your tickets, and two more small pockets.
made with Echino fabric that had been hibernating in my fabric bin for a quite sometime. 
this blight purple will make it easier to see when you have tons of stuff in your traveling bag :)
(especially you have a toddler to travel with!)


next!
knitting needle case
because I can't really take my sewing machines with me on this trip,
I am planning to knit when I have free time in Japan.
I've been knitting a quite bit more than the last year,
and started accumulating knitting needles.
they deserve a proper home anyway.
this way, they are very organised and easier to travel with!
I used this tutorial, but you also can find a lot more here


next!
zipper pouches
 
originally made one for my ergo,
then realized they were very handy and made some more for other things!
one of them became a diaper bag, which keeps the bigger diaper bag organized 
and you can just take this smaller diaper bag out when you take the little one to a washroom.
the very big black one is used for my knitting stuff, just big enough for a few rolls of yarn and the needle case.
two more, and I think I am going to use them for socks/underwear, etc...


and the last!
traveler's jewelry case

ever since I saw this creation on Burdastyle,
I had been wanting to make myself one!
it is so handy when you travel and it keeps earrings and necklaces from getting tangled!
I often have a problem(even at home) with that and end up spending 15-20min to unravel the mess.
ha! finally!!
this will make my life so much easier!!


phew!
what a week of sewing!!
I got so much stuff done and am ready to travel!!!!!
well, I guess it's time to pack up then :)

P.S. is anyone interested in a how-to on any of the projects above?
maybe I can put it together when I have time?? ;)

Wow, you have been working so much lately! They are so lovely! Oh and thank you for sharing the picture of your lovely daughter with the backpack;) She is so adorable and kinda cute that a little girl is carrying her own stuff! She will soon put her make-up pouch in it:D
