So finally I am starting to think about creative projects again and what I want to make. Its been an age since Ive done any sewing and I am starting to miss making things.
I want to make some more dresses for the Kid but am undecided on what style. I want something for everyday not fancy party dresses but I haven't found a pattern that is jumping out at me yet. I haven't had a look at the commercial patterns for a long time so it might be time to check out Simplicity and Burda to see what they are offering.
In the meantime I thought Noodlehead's Road Trip Case would be fun to make - one for the Kid and those multiplying elastic band creations that are strewn around the house and one for me for my on the go embroidery projects. Only wish I had started earlier as we are off on a little holiday for next week and it would have been great to have them for that.
One thing I really struggle with is fabric combinations - I can sit and stare at different fabrics for ages and still not know if they work. Whereas others just seem to have it down to an art, I get nervous about what goes with what.
Anyway, after much deliberation and a desire to only use what I have in my stash, I have come up with the following combos - the top is of for the Kid and the bottom one for me. I may end up not using all the fabrics in each group but its a good start.
