After I got off my crazy Harvest Moon kick, I got on a sewing kick (with hours and hours of Doctor Who in the background!).
The not as interesting ones first:
Two little hidden pouches for our passports and some money for while we're in Russia,
and passport cover for my awesome passport (tutorial found here).
A little more exciting: I found this awesome wallet tutorial (link here) and decided to make one! I've had my old wallet for probably 6 years and wanted a new one, but I have waaay more time than money right now...and I also felt like sewing! so I made one myself.
There's lots of little pockets for my myriad of cards.
Librarrrrrry carrrrd!!!!! (yeah, that was probably the first thing we did when we got here--got a library card. We were here for 2 days and Jesse was going crazy without any books to read!)
It has a pocket for stuuuuf...
And a zipper pocket for my moneys! (I sewed a zipper!)
I was also lazy and didn't want to walk back and forth to the sewing machine downstairs so I sewed it all by hand...fun!
That wallet inspired me to make up my own half-sized wallet! This one is a little different though.
It's got the same card pockets, but no zipper.
But I got clever and made a little bill pocket on the side! I had to sit and think for awhile about how I could line both sides AND hide all the seams....but I figured it out :D (*pats herself on the back*)
And there's itty bitty pockets on the side!
Aaaand that's it! (for now!) We leave in 4 days--any suggestions for random stuff I should sew with my spare time?
