I am working on a few little things this week, but there are no photos of them yet. I have been busy packing and sorting, so not much creating happening (boo)
This is what I made my mum for Mother's day a few weeks ago. A cute zippered travel pouch. I put some Hong Kong money in the pouch too, so she is all ready to come and visit us when we have moved to Hong Kong.
It is the perfect length to fit her boarding pass and other travelling documents. I find it much easier to have them all in the one place when they are needed. Zippered up, nice and cosy.
I have a funny feeling I will be making lots more of these. For starters, I want one for ME! Then, I guess my Shropshire boy could really do with one too.
Don't you think they make a great gift idea? So yes, I will definitely be making more.
All the Creative Spaces are over here now, in a new home. Do pop in and visit. You will be glad you did.
Happy Thursday to you.
Absolutely - fab gift idea. I love the strawberry print you used. How long is it before you move to Hong Kong? Very exciting. Really vibrant place to live!ReplyDelete
Oh I love the strawberry print. Just gorgeousReplyDelete
What a beautiful little pouch! Great idea to keep your boarding passes, passport etc together! Love the fabric too!ReplyDelete

I LOVE this Cat. I love all your ideas and designs. I want talent like yours so I can make pretty things too!ReplyDelete
I *just* bought a T-towel this morning with strawberries on it, couldn't resist... anything with gorgeous coloured fruit designs on it and I'm hooked!
Thanks for sharing :o)
It's a fantastic gift idea, you mum must have been really happy!ReplyDelete
Those little pouches are so handy! I use lots of them for all kinds of things and would love a strawberry one in my collection. xReplyDelete
Love the print that you chose. Great gift, hope your Mum loved it.ReplyDelete
Just think of how many pouches you could make to hold all kinds of stuff for your move to HOng Kong! They do make georgeous gifts too..good idea giving your mum HK dollars!ReplyDelete
Wordless Wednesday was priceless.ReplyDelete
Such a brilliantly simple idea, and so pretty too. She's going to breeze through that airport.ReplyDelete

Gorgeous! Clever you! It even matches your blog perfectly!ReplyDelete
great idea and great fabric choices. didi she love it?ReplyDelete
how's the packing going?
That is so cute - and I agree, travel documents tend to go walkabout if they're not zipped up somewhere safe (though I favour scattering them throughout my luggage so I can have a panicked rummage at customs with a long queue stampeding behind me!)ReplyDelete
This is such a great idea Cat and so pretty too. I bet your Mum really loved her thoughtful gift that you made. xoReplyDelete
How cute is that strawberry fabric! And the puch is perfect. She'll love it.ReplyDelete
I love your travel case so handy and pretty too !ReplyDelete
Thank you lovelies - mum did love her travel pouch. It brought tears to both our eyes, as we are leaving so soon - in 5 weeks (as long as I get all the packing and sorting finished......)ReplyDelete
Such a cute little travel pouch!! Love the fabric :)ReplyDelete
Yep. All kinds of perfect. I bet you wish you could put all that packing business in a pouch...(hang in there!)ReplyDelete
