My (travelling) Creative Space

Travel Pouch

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.

Travel Pouch

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.

  18. great idea and great fabric choices. didi she love it?

    how's the packing going?

  19. 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!)
