I love starting a new project, especially when it's a really useful one! The Ultimate Travel Sewing Companion was been on my to-do list for a few weeks. This pattern is by Lynette Anderson Designs, and I chose some fabrics also by Lynette, from her Hollyhock Cottage collection that had been in my stash for simply ages...
...the smaller pockets have been decorated with hand embroidery using variegated Valdani threads, and small appliqued hexagons (I used the applique paper and glue stick method for this). The appliqued woolfelt hexagon is a needle keeper, and there's also a handy fastening for my scissors to keep them secure in a pocket, and a small cutting board will fit in the larger pocket. The sides of the pockets are neatened with binding, which will attch to zippers. The next step is to make some clear vinyl pockets - I'll share some pictures as I go along, so check back for more updates!
