With Quiltcon coming up in just about 2 weeks (OMG!) I’ve been thinking about how to organize my sewing supplies for traveling. I have a large tool box I usually use when I need ALL my sewing stuff but for this trip I need to streamline my supplies. I want to bring just the essentials so I don’t have too much to lug around. Ideally, I’ll carry it all in an adorable handmade bag. Here are a few I’m considering making:
Atkinson Designs – Bridget’s Bagetts
These cute little zip bags would make finding everything so easy with the clear vinyl windows
Noodlehead – Road Trip Case
This hold it all has a lot of great pockets plus built-in needle/pin holder!
Atkinson Designs – Classmate
This one is similar, but slightly smaller than the Road Trip Case and with lots of great pockets!
Carolyn Friedlander – Nest Egg Tote
I think this one is the cutest option! It’s got nice pocket and elastic storage options, zips up and has a strap you can throw over your shoulder. Plus, I could remove my sewing supplies and use it as a small bag for going out!
(Psst… We also have a class coming up for this cutie in March)
It’s so hard to pick just one to make! I might have to make one of each and then pick the winner once they’re all sewn up. You can’t have enough bags right?!
As for the essential notions to pack with me, here is what I’ve got planned:
Olfa – Splash Rotary Cutter
Cute and compact!
The best seam ripper ever!
Easy Kut – Spring Action Scissor
I LOVE these! They make snippin’ threads a breeze.
Compact, adorbs packaging and amazing quality!
Aurifil Cotton Mako Thread
A big, fat spool of the best in a neutral color
Are you going to Quiltcon? I’d love to see what everyone else is planning on packing and what you’re packing everything in.
