It is Wednesday and I think I am getting the hang of WIP Wednesday and trying to schedule my new projects accordingly. We are off on holiday soon, and that only means one thing, I need to get ready, so ...
I clearly need a new passport wallet.
Mr MiH has his very own, but tends to carry my wallet as well - and I am assuming this will mean the baby's one in the future.So the fabric choice needed to be 'manly', Mr MiH would refuse to carry the passports otherwise - and he is providing a valuable service (i.e. it is not my fault if we lose them, and he runs much faster than me if there is a problem).
I bought the pattern at One Shabby Chick's Etsy store, after seeing Kelly's one. You can see my choice of fabric on the left hand-side corner of the picture. It is all cut and I am ready to start with the instructions, loads of pictures so should be straight forward. I am making the 4 passport wallet, although with the baby we are going to end up with 5 passports in the household - I am the single-passported member of the family - feeling slightly 'under-passported'.
Next is a beach/swimming pool bag. There will be a swimming pool where we are staying, and there are beaches as well. I found the reversible bag pattern yesterday (free pattern), cut it out last night. And I have already made some modifications - it will be bigger and bi-coloured on the outside, and in linen fabrics. Looks fairly easy on paper...
I obviously need a holiday project, and you will be glad to know I am knitting again! It took a bit of time to recover from Winnowing, but now I am back swatching away for a cardigan, and trying to find the right colour and gauge..
It is not just about WIPs, I finished a little project using my bias tape, I just need a couple of things to really finish it off - so hopefully that will be over and done with this weekend, but here is a sneak peak at it. I love this bias tape..
