Totes for the Trip
Dresswear Tote-Boardwalk, Eat-out Wear
Pocket in corner for matching earrings.
Determined not to pack my clothes in grocery bags,
I made a tote for each category of vacation items.
The Dragonfly and shell fabric found on the 6.97 Upholstery remnant table in G Street Fabrics Home Dec Dept worked perfect for Vacation Beach Trip.
Big Totes-Half Yard for outside and contrast for inside.
The Plain Tote for Casual Walking Jeans-Shorts
The shell Tote for swim/Kayaking wear.
Clear Plastic covered Tote-inside and out for Kayakin' wet wear
Leather pieces for trim and snake skin type handle and clear plastic all from G Street Fabrics.
A dragonfly Tote for General Kayaking/ Swimwear.
And an additional Shell Tote for bed sheets and PJS
The smaller Dragonfly tote was perfect for personals.
These were made on the morning of the trip. Make a tote, and pack it... put it to the doorway. Make a tote, and pack it... put it to the doorway.... and on and on... Then throw them in the car and leave....... Okay, so I don't do anything ahead of time. But I didn't have to go to the store for anything, all was there at my sewing machine....
My kayaks were all in the car already and when I went to the grocery earlier in the week, I bought one extra roll of paper towels, one extra pack of toilet paper-septic safe, two extra boxes of cereal and bottles of water extra for the first two days of vacation, creamer and took my coffee container..... Ready set drive...... OKAY?! I think I did GOOD!
