I’ve been asked several times in e-mails and by friends and family how I’ve managed to do all the sewing and crafting that I do when I’m traveling from contract to contract with Dave. Today I thought I’d share the items we make sure to fit in the car.
Inside the dark blue bag pictured above is a portable Singer sewing machine of 1970s vintage.
I call this bag my Aloha duffel bag because we bought it while living on Maui.
As you can see… it holds a lot!
The world’s largest zippered bag holds my 36” cutting mat, a 24” ruler, a 15.5” square ruler and a 6” square rule.
My new embroidery tote carries its fair share of embroidery, crochet and other crafting supplies.
A set of sheets came in the clear plastic zippered bag in the top photo. If you look closely you’ll see that it’s used to store fabric.
And to finish things off, the long, narrow blue plaid bag in the center front of that top photo contains all my knitting needles.
So that’s how I’ve been able to continue to sew, embroider, crochet and knit while we’ve been leading this gypsy life (on steroids) for the past three years.
