I go to a lot of quilting retreats and lock-ins. My friend Vicki hosts a really fun lock-in down at Tammy Tadd Designs 2 Saturdays a month. We have SO much fun!
What isn't fun, though, is running around my sewing room, gathering the things I think I'll need to take! I always grab things I don't need... and usually forget to grab things I do need :)
So I decided to make a travel kit! Everything in the kit would be always there and ready to go, and not used at any other time.
So I grabbed some of my very favoritest fabrics EVER, from the "Wild Thyme" collection from P&B Fabrics. And I made a nice big zippered bag.
This bag can hold a lot of stuff, including some smaller rulers!
And each side is fixed up with some elastic bands to hold things! This one also has a pocket to hold bobbins, sewing machine needles and the seam ripper that I need more than I'd like to admit :)
This side has more elastic bands, and a detachable pincushion with pins!
Now instead of spending part of the day packing to go to a lock-in, I can just grab this gab and go :)
