Passport Cover and Cleaning Up

I forgot to share one last gift I made this year - a passport cover, for Mike's cousin. I used this excellent and very clear tutorial from bunnybum.

Shalyn loves red and pink, so I used some Amy Butler Love for the outside:



Pockets!


Her family loves to travel, so I though this would be perfect. It was easy to whip up; it took maybe ten minutes.

Think about trying it out when you hear of a friend who is leaving on a big, exciting trip! I know I'm going to sew up a couple more of these babies next year - hopefully, one for me! I'm actually going to apply for my passport tomorrow, coincidentally.

One more thing: remember back at this post when I said I'd cleaned up my quilting area? Here's what the "clean" storage looked like then (mind you, I'm using half of the dining room, and I can't wait to have my own sewing room one day!):


Well, I "cleaned" again! This is definitely much better. Still boxes and bags of fabric to the right, but that's beside the point :)

("Scraps," "Precuts," and "Fall and Christmas") - my three largest categories of fabric right now. All my FQs and half yard/yards are stored in those lovely plastic drawers.

Yay for organization! Just in time for the New Year. Speaking of, I've got a New Years resolution post coming up. See you then!
