While visiting three of our grandchildren, we made simple coasters. The twins are in a sewing class and are doing a great job of learning how to sew.
My grandson isn’t old enough to use the sewing machine so I made his.
My fellow blogger, Salpal1, made some curtains and I commented on the travel theme. Mr. Aitch and I just got a new GPS and I thought a travel-themed fabric would be great to sew up a case for it. So Salpal sent me some of her leftover fabric.
…no West Virginia!
The inside…Then I decided to make another cover/case for the window attachment and cord and have it large enough so everything would fit inside for when we want to remove it all from the car and keep everything all together. I adapted the size of this pattern and made it a bit smaller. I didn’t have enough of the Route 66 Fabric so I pieced together some complementary fabric to make it large enough.
Um, one side.
Thank you, Salpal, for the fabric scraps. I love it and had fun making it.
I need some small project bags for travel knitting but didn’t find any suitable (knitting or yarn related) fabric in my stash.
Enter the wonderful interwebs shopping! In less than a week I had this cute fabric from Rushin’ Tailor (in Alaska) in my hands and am so excited to make something out of it!
I’m rushing this final part and as a result it’s been ripped apart twice. And now for a third time.
See how the fabric weave is not on the straight grain? That’s a big problem. So I’m ripping it out. Again. And will make welting cord the right way and sew it onto the top and bottom of the cushion cover. Then I’ll sew the gusset by marking each corner.
As my grandmother used to say, “If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” Sorry Gram, it’s taking me three times to remember that.
