Many of our students have family in other countries, and go back each summer to visit them. Inspired by their travel, this summer we dedicated a whole week of summer camp to travel gear. Ciara helped me create a travel pouch with lots of pockets for kids to hide their candy, passports, foreign currencies, post cards and pens.
What you need:
1-6 choices of fabric (I used scraps of fabric for this)
2 8" zippers
24" of ribbon
Paper to make patterns (newspaper works well)
Start by cutting pattern pieces * CUT one pattern piece of each, When I mention how many to cut below I am talking about the fabric. Each piece below can be cut out of just a few fabrics or each piece can be different. I limited my students to 4 fabrics.
9"x13" - cut 1 * Outside fabric
2.5"x9" - Cut 2 *Zipper Side Panel
9"9.5" - Cut 1 *Zipper inside panel
8.5"x12.5" - Cut 2 *Inside layer, background pieces
4.75x12.5" - Cut 4 *Pockets
5.5x12.5" - Cut 1 *Inside pocket
* 1/2" seam allowances are included
If your fabric is thinner, cut interfacing for all your pieces and iron on before starting.
Let me know if you need photos of the process to make this more clear.
