Potential Convention Projects


There is this beautiful book I found on amazon.com a while back with fun sewing projects.  Its called Sew & Stow by Betty Oppenheimer, and you can find it here.  As if I needed more projects, I've been trying to teach myself to sew and this book is filled with fun storage-useful projects.  Last night I was flipping through it and found a few things I think would be useful to make for convention.  So thought I'd share them here.


I saw this "Hobo Bandana Bundle" and thought it was adorable but I'm not exactly sure yet what I'd use it for, convention wise...maybe snacks or Jordan's toys.  The book suggests making it with two bandannas which is a great idea but I might make it from scratch with fabric squares instead.


When I saw this "Load-it-Up Laundry Bag", I thought it would be perfect for a shower bag to take to and from the showers.  I used to have a nice bag for that but not sure what happened to it and I love this one.  Might even add some sort of water-resistant liner on the inside and a pocket or two on the outside for toothbrushes and such.


This "Carry-Along Seat" would be great for some cushioning!  I usually just use a pillow and sheet, but this looks fun to make so adding it to my "possible-to-do" list.  Will probably make one for me and Jordan both.


I LOVE this "Best Bedroll Ever"!!  I've been in dire need for a new sleeping bag and while this one isn't anything fancy in the way of warmth or water-proofing, it would be great to sleep along with some blankets if its as cold this year as it was last year at Riverton!

So...I tend to get a lot of ideas and start about half of them, finishing only a few, we'll see how far I get with these!  Not enough time in the day is there?
