Busy Bunny - crafts for my trip

I've been a pretty busy bunny getting ready for my trip. When researching what I would need for my trip I kept coming across fun things that aren't really necessary but would certainly make the journey more enjoyable. For many of these things I kept thinking to m'self that I could totally make them - and better!


Wool Airplane-booties - to slip on over my socks and keep my toes warm :)

Over the course of my trip I'll spend over sixty hours on planes and in airports. Some little comforts will go a long way I think. :)

I saw these cute leather initial luggage tags and thought they would be so lovely to make out of the all-wool felt I'd gotten a little while ago. Three felt layers with sturdy ribbon for tying.

And finally (for now) I got myself a cotton/bamboo eye mask but
discovered that it's cream color let too much light through. Wool felt to the rescue once again! Simple chain-stitch embroidery around the edge and a B in a heart. Napping should be easy!
