Since it appears that my partner has gone on her vacation without the use of my package, I shall post the pictures! My partner wanted to go backpacking across Europe. (And I didn't make a backpack because it's harder than it looks!)
Everything on my awesome pink striped sheets. Clockwise from left, stars next to what I made: *Bag with awesome skeleton print (from a couple Halloweens ago, but she likes skulls), *first aid kit, 12 piece silverware kit (handy for travel), freeze dried ice cream (Neapolitan!
), Hair bands and one headband, *keepsake box with hidden album, stuffed turtle (for cuddling up to after all that sight-seeing). Not pictured: *passport cover.
Modeled by my passport.
Passport cover. You can't tell in the photos, but it's this cool textured felt on the outside, like alligator skin or something.
Inside: Pink leopard print!
Keepsake book/box from Hobby Lobby! I spray painted it, then covered it in Europe-esque stickers.
It only looks like a book! The inside is a box complete with a matching photo album for her pictures/memories!
First aid kit! It didn't turn out so mini though. I used the pattern/instructions from The Happy Hooker with a few modifications. I didn't make a bottom or a strap, just sewed it around the edges and added a zipper (which stretched horribly).
Crappy shot of the inside. I included normal first aid items. Band Aids, a couple of those hot hands things, an ice pack, glow sticks, chapstick, (okay, I confess, I'm not really sure what exactly goes in a first aid kit...but it's the thought that counts and it's not like it won't hold more stuff.)
