What I made before I left:
A Weekender! I used Peltex on the bottom and feel that the Peltex is truly what makes the Weekender a monster! I would like to remove Peltex from my life. Also, I just sergered my inside seams and called it a day. The bag is sturdy, the seams are sturdy, and I'm the only one looking in there!
The ugliest iPad case ever. It was 2 am, I was getting on a plane in a few hours, and I needed a case. Plus, I knew I would come home with a nice case, so I just needed something to hold me over.
A little organizer to keep all my class lists and needs straight. I copied Terri's design (but altered it for my needs).
I also had all my handmade goodies from last year!
What I came back with made by others:
An iPad case made by Amber and donated to the Silent Auction. Love it!
A zipper pouch made by Erika. It held all of my small sewing supplies on the way home and I adore it, just like I adore Erika.
A cute bracelet made by Terri. She is such a sweety and full of energy! Plus: Hope Valley!!!
A little box/bin made by Darcy. This is heading to school with me to keep my keys in place in my desk. Darcy filled it with candy and a Starbucks card. She's also won my bag at the Silent Auction. Dare I say she is my biggest supporter? I think so. Love her. I'm lucky enough to get to see her more than once a year!
A clutch from Elena. Perfect for phone, money, and ID. I put it to use right when she gave it to me!! She also included cute hair pins AND a sewing necklace!!
A pillowcase to protect me from hotel germs, courtesy of Michelle. She even shipped it to the hotel so that I would have a present waiting for me there! I was so sad that she couldn't come teach and be my roomie. At least a I had a little part of her there.
** Picture pending. It's on my bed, which usually looks a mess! **
Beautiful calligraphy from Melissa! I also won this in the Silent Auction. I am all about getting out the seam ripper (which, BTW, I love my Baby Lock seam ripper that was in our BL goodie bags!).
