Again not a lot of sewing for me. Auckland Libraries staff have finally been given the details of our work restructure package, resulting in all staff having to reapply for jobs, which thankfully is now done. Now we are just waiting to hear what job we get and which library we will be working at, so it is quite a stressful time at present. Needless to say that has taken up a wee bit of quality sewing time.
Some good news though, is that I have booked a trip to visit my sister in Australia in June. Of course a trip needs new accessories, so I made a quick and easy little travel folio, just big enough to hold my passport, printed tickets, insurance documents, boarding pass and a pen. Its girly and a little frivolous, and totally different in colour to anything that would be in my bag, so should be easy to locate in my luggage now.
I used a Tilda floral fabric for the outer and a co-ordinating text fabric for the inside, vertical quilting to hold those layers together then a simple pocket was bound and stitched to the interior. Bound with a Victoria Findlay Wolfe fabric and tied with a gold toned ribbon. Approximate measurements are 8" x 10".
Now for a travel related question, am I allowed to do hand sewing while flying?
