Travel and sewing totally mix— and since the weather is becoming just a little bit nicer and we are venturing outdoors, I thought today should be all about sewing kits or things that will make sewing on the go a little easier and pleasant!
There are a few that are my favorite— which I will be sharing below…like the armchair pincushion and the camp chair bag and the sewing handbag! All of these are great for wherever you are and in whatever situation you are in.
Do you have a great way for packing around your sewing? Hit reply and let me know, I’d love to hear about it.

Binding is still happening around here! I am not one who puts things off….but it looks like binding has been put off multiple times and it’s piling up!
I’m fairly certain that this will do it for now, but know that the pile again will quickly grow. There are still a couple more quilts I am just finishing up, so it’s bound to happen.
Plus, I get to use my favorite clips and thimble.
Just a quick note added to this— the IAQ (online quilt group) is open again! You can join anytime right now…and start sewing along with us. We have been working on the Sampler of 2018 and the Scavenger Hunt BOM. Both, you can find on the site: https://iaquilters.com
today’s topic travel & sewing
The night is kind of the best time to sit and relax.and nothing is better for relaxing than some hand stitching. What I find though is I loose my scissors, miss place the thread, and who knows how many buttons and other goodies are tucked in between the cushions or behind pillows.
To save a little bit of frustration, the armchair pincushion, and sewing pocket is perfect.

Another of my favorites is the hand bag for hand stitching. The bag handle is large enough for your arm to go through– so it hangs down.
You can store your hand stitching in there or your yarn – if you are a crochet or knitter as well!
It’s super handy to have and it’s not that deep, so you aren’t reaching or digging forever either.

This last one might be a little funky– but I love mine!
It’s a camp chair bag…..and you can make it using an orphan quilt block! Double love that!
It’s not a perfectly finished bag, which makes it sew up quick and really, you are camping.
You just need something that will work and can hang there and get a little dirty- and it’s not going to be upsetting.
