Travel Handmade: Wrap-up!
Hi there! We wanted to take a moment today to wrap up our Travel Handmade series! It was a very busy month! As usual, the teachers, staff, and attendees that participated have defied all expectations! So much wonderful crafting going on!
That is the entire point of this series. It’s not about who can travel the MOST handmade, it’s simply about encouraging everyone to get behind their sewing machines and create. We so often make time to create things for others, while forgetting to make things for ourselves to use! We hope this series left you feeling inspired! Didn’t have time to make anything? That’s okay! This series, our Pinterest boards, and the Travel Handmade flickr group will be here for you if you ever get the itch to sew up a bag or travel accessory!
So, let’s take a quick recap of this month!
The next three weeks had us hopping all over blog land visiting with different teachers, staff members, and attendees. There were pattern reviews, tutorials, peeks into sewing bags and a look at some travel outfits!
We stopped in with many talented bloggers on our hop: Katy Jones, Sewing Summit, Vanessa Hewell, Jeni Baker, Ali Winston, Shelia Mathies, Katie Blakesley, Heather Scrimsher, Christina Lane, Kati Spencer, Anna Graham, Emily Herrick, Deborah Moebes, and Melissa Esplin!
The Travel Handmade ideas Pinterest board that was started at the beginning of the month now has over 700 pins, most of which are tutorials and patterns!
You can find even more fantastic attendee projects using the hash tag #travelhandmade on Twitter and Instagram! We hope you’ll continue to share (and tag) your beautiful projects and progress! (Don’t have Instagram? You can view all the #travelhandmade photos online, here!)
A huge thank you to our fantastic blog hoppers, the Sewing Summit staff, and all of you, for making this event great! See you soon!
