***Update: these are now for sale in my shop here***
i noticed that some of the fabric i bought recently had a big red pen mark on it, and since i'm too lazy to return it i just decided to use it make another travel kit for myself. and make an actual tutorial for you guys.
-interfacing (4" x 6")
-batting (10" x 6")
-3" strips of velcro (not pictured)
so the order of the rectangles for the inside/outside goes: (4" x 6") (4"x 6") (3" x 6) and you will need to cut one of each out of the main fabric and contrasting fabric. the narrower rectangle will form the closing flap. these are the pieces that are linen and blue/green patterned pieces pictured.
the blue pieces are the pocket lining (6" x 7") and accessories pocket (4" x 6").
next add the pocket for accessories. you can customize the width of the pockets for whatever you want, but for mine i made the hair band pocket roughly 1.5", nail clippers 1", tweezers and bobby pins .75".
i don't have any pictures of the next step, but attach a piece of velcro to the other piece of fabric. it should be roughly 1" from the edge of the larger square of main fabric or the side OPPOSITE of the flap.
then, right sides together, sew all around the edges leaving a small opening on the flap. flip inside out and press. topstitch all around the flap closing the opening, and attach the other piece of velcro.
and fill the pockets and voila! a brand new travel kit!
how do you keep organized when you travel? do you keep everything in one big bag or do you have a separate bag for everything?
