Ma Trousse de Voyage

I'm doing some traveling this summer and decided that I'm going to take along some art supplies. In the evenings, after a busy day, I enjoy writing in my journal. I've thought about taking it a step further and adding some sketches and doodles in colour. This time I'm going to do it. I stitched this little travel kit from a scrap of denim and a bit of ribbon in no time at all.

Unrolled, this is what it looks like - the colours are so inspiring.


  1. Now that looks like fun! My hubby gave me something similar a few years ago for my paint brushes; I like your idea of adding coloured pencils to the pockets!

    As you say, just unrolling the little kit will inspire you, what with all those cheery colours staring up at you!


  2. Great pencil roll. I don't leave home without mine. I made mine from the plans in Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson-- great book.

  3. Lorrie,
    It looks like you are ready to go.
    Have a wonderful trip and put that roll to good use.

    love ya,

  4. What a great travel kit. You inspire me. I get ideas like that and then after a day sightseeing don't get around to it. Hope you hve more success.

  5. Hi Lorrie! What a great idea!!! Ooooh how I wish I were traveling with you this summer! I hope you will be sharing your drawings with us when you return. ~ xo Joy

  6. I certainly hope you are inspired to draw alot during your travels AND have the time! Can't wait to hear about your trip when you return.
