To help keep them entertained

26 Jun

I am packing up the family, so they can accompany me on a business trip to the “other” coast. To help keep H & J entertained on the flights, I made little cloth pouches for a few travel fun packs.  I used some scrap fabric and leftover bias tape and filled the bags with some fun toys, small books, and activities.

While I am attending workshops,  my husband and the kids will be spending the most wonderful time with my sister-in-law and her family. I made a few pencil rolls for H. and J. as well as two to give to my niece and nephew.  H & J picked out the fabric for their pencil rolls. H. picked out the Rapunzel print from Heather Ross’s Far Far Away II, and J. picked out the guitars.

I really love the new Heather Ross Far Far Away II line, but I wish it were made from the double gauze Far Far Away I used.  I was hoping to make a dress for H’s upcoming birthday using the Sleeping Beauty print, but the cotton/linen mix seems a bit to thick and stiff. I may give it a try anyhow.
