Almost every time we have a trip coming up, I suddenly remember or find new things that I need to make "for the trip". If it's during the school year I may not be able to no matter how badly I want to, but since we don't have full school days right now, I was able to crank out a few projects.
I told you about my purse that I made. Here it is. I usually prefer a big bag, but I just thought this time it might be nice to also have a small one for days spent walking around a lot. It was great to have one go across the shoulder and never slip off and not have to worry about it.
I also made these pillows for the girls. The pocket and handle make it perfect for traveling. I saw this on Pintrest several months ago. I didn't follow their instructions because I'm familiar enough with making pillow covers that I didn't really need too. I was only using materials and trims that I already had on hand so I didn't use the piping as you can see.
The girls both really liked the idea when I showed them, so they picked out their fabrics from the stash and they came together very easily. I think they would make great gifts for some nieces and nephews.
As for reading.....I took a book called "Wisp of a Thing" with us to Tennessee. It started out good, became a little weird, but still very interesting, but also became more and more foul. I have a very low tolerance for foul language and unfortunately it got worse and worse as the story was reaching the climax! I did finish it, but honestly, I felt like I shouldn't have. I should have re-read "Cold Sassy Tree" or "To Kill a Mockingbird"! Oh well. Next time I'll take a back up.
Linking up with Elizabeth.
