Travel Accessories

Later this fall, hubby and I will be travelling to Europe with two other couples. We are having a dinner together next week to celebrate making our final payment on the trip.
.
I'm making some travel accessories for each of the other couples to give them at the dinner next week. Here are the items that I finished today. The Take-Along Bag (by Lazy Girl Designs) is a favorite of mine, as you probably know. This fun RCMP and maple leaf fabric is perfect for our international travel.
.
I also made each couple a pair of luggage tags as well. I used the luggage tag tutorial that can be found on my sidebar. I modified the pattern a bit so that the tag is in the shape of a tag instead of a rectangle. I like it.
.
There is another another travel item that I want to make for each of them too. It's a free pattern called the Aeropac by StudioKat designs, but I'm not sure I'll have time to make them by our dinner Tuesday. We'll see....

Oh - thank you for the link! I never looked through their free instructions, and we're traveling to England in less than a month.

I LOVE that Mountie & Maple Leaf fabric!
