Quilting on the go by Jessica Alexandrakis

Maybe you have the urge to sew but don’t want to be stuck behind your sewing machine all the time. English paper piecing quilting is wonderfully portable. You can stitch on the train, bus, or airplane, in waiting rooms, in the car while your baby naps, or at the beach; all the stolen moments when your hands are idle.

This laptop bag is a great on-the-go project as you can fit everything you need into a bag. It would make a great gift or maybe as a little something for yourself . . .

Hobbycraft Inspirational Content Marketing Assistant, I'm in love with all things craft, vintage and floral. I spend my spare time visiting craft fairs in the south on the look out for something that's a little bit different. When not out exploring by foot I'm on my bike riding around the country side or down by the beach.
