15 Tutorials for the Summer Holidays

I have jetted off to northern Italy to go for a wonder about the mountains. As many of you will also be off on your summer holiday travels soon,  I’ve compiled a list of really useful and, more importantly, pretty travel accessories to sew up ready for your next trip.

1. Passport Holder


First off, pretty up your passport with this super easy tutorial from Seakettle.

2. Luggage Tag


Skip to my Lou designed this great little luggage tag, you could match up your passport and tag for travel coordination.

3. Travel Pillow


If you’re going on a long flight this adorable travel pillow is the perfect travelling companion from Handmade Charlotte.

4. Eye Mask

Another must for flying (or napping in the airport). Block out the bad lighting and drift off to sleep with this eye mask from Tilly and the Buttons.

5. Makeup Bag 

This practical and pretty tutorial for a zip bag by AmusingMJ,  is the perfect size for makeup, jewelry or, my necessary for traveling, inhalers!

6. Infinity Scarf

You just can’t beat a good scarf when travelling, and this one by Polkadotchair has poppers! Unsnap it and you have a cosy blanket perfect for keeping your knees warm on a chilly flight.

7. Cable Cosy

My chargers inevitably end up in a tangled mess whether I’m traveling or not. I definitely need to make a cable cosy by Liveit. Love it. Make it!

8. Tote Bags Three Ways

A three for one pattern tutorial by Purl Soho with easy, easier, easiest options. A good tote bag is an essential travel accessory, pick the one for your level and get sewing!

9. Makeup Brush roll

This is a simple tutorial for a simple and practical travel accessory from Centsational Girl. I’d fill mine with pens and pencils.

10. Jewelry Organiser

Nothing makes an outfit complete like that perfect piece of jewellery.You can take all those trinkets with you with this travel organiser by Brit + Co.

11. Tissue Holder


One of our own! Sarah came up with this super cute tissue holder. Don’t leave home without one.

12. Travel Wallet

Keep organised with this essential travel wallet by So Sew Easy. Have everything in one place and clasped firmly to your side.

13. Laundry Bag

I love this idea from Enjoy/Create! Far better than a couple of plastic bags to keep your unmentionables tidy when traveling.

14. Card Holder

A great travel accessory from Mollie Makes. And, a brilliant way to use up some of those fat quarters.

15. Kindle Case

However much I love physical books I have to admit the kindle certainly saves a lot of space whilst traveling. Bring back the tactile experience of reading with this fantastic fabric cover tutorial by Whipstitch.

We’re also running some great workshops in our studio with summer in mind.  Our Carry-All Bag is always popular, make a Beach Cover-up for the sun, or make our Really Useful Roll– perfect for rolling up your make-up brushes for a glamorous trip abroad or your cutlery if you’re glamping this Summer.
