Travel Handmade by jenib320

Took a little break from bag making, but now I'm back at it for the homestretch to Sewing Summit! I made this luggage tag to go with my Duffel Bag. The tag pattern came along with the duffel bag pattern, Simplicity #2274. Despite not having any double-fuse peltex (thank you glue stick!), and having to sew with vinyl and set an eyelet, it was a pretty quick project! :)

I used this wildflower print from Far Far Away III by Heather Ross. This is the lighter-weight cotton/linen and it is just lovely! I ordered it from Beebolt! It was my first order from them, and the service was great! Got here quickly, wrapped nicely and not only was everything cut super straight, all the half-yards were closer to 19" than 18"! Woo hoo!

Made up this quick pencil pouch this week for Michael. I used Heath by Alexander Henry and this crossword print by Michael Miller. I had to try really hard to resist embroidering something on it, I was afraid he wouldn't use it if I did! Hehe!

I was lucky enough to be able to meet Jenna this past weekend! She stopped by to visit for a few hours of crafty chat. What a sweetheart! She brought along some tomatoes that she'd grown and we've been using them to make these yummy crostini, so good!

Also thanks to Jenna, I finished my Pink Daisy Pyrex collection! We did a little pyrex and vintage sheet swap! I finally got my hands on that pink daisy open baker! :)
