New pattern coming soon!

Yay!!!  I’m super excited about my newest pattern!  It’s been a while! So when my kids inspired me to make this project, I jumped right in.  I’ll talk about my original inspiration and then chat about all the other things this case is amazing for, okay?

You know about Rainbow Loom, right?  Well, if you have kids or grandkids or neighbor’s kids or nieces or nephews you might already.  It’s been the thing to do!

My girls started coming home from school with these fun rubber band bracelets a few months ago and they haven’t stopped since.  Unfortunately, the box the loom came in doesn’t really do it for me.  I like to be a little more organized and have something a little more durable to tote around.

So that’s where this pattern started and now it’s evolved into a multi-purpose case for just about anything!  The pattern has two different pocket configurations to suit a variety of anything you’d want to carry around.  The one version holds a loom and a case (or additional loom), the loom hook and has a zippered compartment for all the odds and ends.

Don’t have a Rainbow Loom or don’t care? The alternate pocket version is so perfect for art supplies, with lots of great easy-to-access pockets, it’ll be the perfect grab and go item.  I also made one for sewing supplies!  It fits just about every sewing notion and supply I’d want to take along on a sewing get together with friends.  I’ll show the sewing one once the pattern is released!

Anyway, I hope to have everything set for Friday! So see you then! And hopefully I’ll come up with a good name for it by then, too!

    So nice!

  2. Eek, that looks awesome! My boys would love toting them round with their art supplies (and doubtless the odd toy car thrown in). Can’t wait for the pattern release!

  3. Can’t wait! I was wanting something like this for road trips for my kids.

    Anna…this pattern is going to be a must buy for me! We need some serious organization/travel/carrying solutions to our rainbow looms! Love it!

  8. Rebecca says:

    Loving the design! You usually name your patterns a descriptive name (like Handcraft Travel Case), but maybe a departure would be fun. You could name it after the daughter who inspired it instead 🙂

  23. Lynne Tilley says:

    I love it! Can’t wait to see the whole pattern. I’ll be ordering this one for sure. I have two granddaughters. I don’t know if they do that rubber-band thing yet, but they definitely could use a little bag like this for traveling when they drive from San Antonio to DFW area to see their Mema and Papa!

  24. Sarah says:

    Adorable! You could call it the craftalong case.

    I. Can’t. Wait. I’ve been searching online, on Etsy, on everywhere for the perfect take-along embroidery case. You’ve created it! And I will have it soon!!! 🙂

    Very cute! I’m sure a name will come looming through your mind in the middle of the night… (sorry, couldn’t resist ;o) )

  31. Laurel says:

    Hurray! Another fabulous pattern from you! Can’t wait to try it out. Especially excited about the sewing version.

  33. dolores says:

    Can’t wait to see the sewing case as these two are adorable. Since everyone wants one for taking on trips or to visit why not call it “Road Tripping Travelalong”!:)

  34. Great idea! I have a few girls around here that could use one of these!

  35. So lovely!
    Greetings from Finland!
