1  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Home away from Home - crafty camping - 2009 on: December 16, 2008 04:32:45 AM
This might only be in season in the southern hemisphere but I'm really excited about crafting up some snazzy camping gear and furnishings for our new camper-trailer (trailer tent). To us, it is the Taj Mahal and very, very exciting. I know I have to do something to make it more comfy though (and brighten up the stretches of utilarian brown/tan).

Here are some of my ideas (some so overly ambitious it's not funny):
 - Utensil roll/bag
 - Food Safe (I'll post picture/plan later) for keeping insects/fur kids out of food
 - Dilly bags & Duffle bags for packing loose cookware/gear etc
 - Dish cloths
 - Tea towels
 - Camp Kitchen furniture (eg folding/hanging cupboards)
 - Quillow/Quilt
 - Travel pillows
 - Rag rug
 - Lounging chairs/pillows
 - Water bottle cosy/carriers
 - Waterproof ponchos
 - Back pack for short hikes
 - Music stools/stands
 - Journal (for all the amazing & not so amazing places to stay/explore)
 - Cookbook for camp recipes

All of these would need to be able to packed/stored in a fairly limited space but not as limited as a backpack...

Anyone else interested? It could be fun Smiley

2  NEWS AND DISCUSSION ABOUT CRAFTSTER / Introduce Yourself / G'day from Melbourne, AU on: December 16, 2008 04:08:47 AM

My name is Clare and I live Melbourne in Victoria, Australia. I live on a small property with 3 little fur kids and 1 large, ageing fur kid. I am more enamoured with many crafts than accomplished at any... this is something I'm working on though! (baby steps, baby steps). I lean towards quilting, sewing, knitting, needlework but want to branch out to new and exciting areas. I'm attempting homemade recipe books and customised journals to supplement some of the more impersonal, but requested,  xmas gifts this year (I've been asked for cash by SIL this year!?!)

Anyways, I'm looking forward to much sharing, caring and learning on craftster,

Thanks for your eyes for this introduction, Clare
