Hello! I'm not sure anyone is still out there, but I am back. We just took our girls on a epic trip around Europe and then Japan and Hong Kong. I had big plans to blog while I was away, but I never seemed to find the time and it was easy to just use Instagram. I didn't have much time to look for craft and fabric shops while I was away, but I did a quick google search when we arrived in a new city in case there was anything close by to where we were staying or going. I am so grateful to all the bloggers who had written about crafting and sewing places they found on their travels and to fellow Instagrammers who messaged me about good places to go so I thought over the next week or so I would share places I found and it may be a help to others.
But first a little something I sewed the morning before we had to leave when I should have been packing.
My wonderful husband bought an iPad Pro for us to take with us as he knew I had pattern writing to do, and illustrations to draw while we were away.
I knew unless I made a bag for it I would somehow damage it, or lose the pen, so I made a simple case. It is really just a giant pencil case with a long pocket inside. To give it a bit of padding I used scraps of cotton batting and quilted a diamond pattern.
It held up really well and everything came back and in one piece!
