Travel Gear Made Easy by Mary Mulari on Sewing With Nancy

Nancy Zieman met Mary Mulari early in her career at a seminar that she was presenting in Minnesota. Mary introduced Nancy to her decorated sweatshirt patterns, a novel idea back then. She didn’t limit her repertoire to embellishing sweatshirts—no, far from it! Each season on Sewing With Nancy, Mary joined Nancy to share her new clever sewing topics. Today, Travel Gear Made Easy Part One is our Sewing With Nancy video feature. Mary has a knack for designing fun and useful travel accessories—you’ll be impressed!

Travel Gear You’ll See in the First Episode

The Roll-Up Travel Blanket is the first project in program one of this 2-part Sewing With Nancy series, Travel Gear Made Easy. Start with 1-1/3 yd. fleece fabric and fun cotton fabric prints. Mary shares easy step-by-step tips on how to add zipper pockets–to hold travel documents, music players, earplugs, and more.

While you’re using the blanket as a coverup during a quick nap, store your eyeglasses, a book, and more in the back zipper pocket.

Roll up the blanket and use as a neck pillow. Loop the handle strap over a luggage extension handle for travel. It’s handy and lightweight.

In the video feature and in her book , Mary even shows how to create her Easy as 1-2-3 Zipper Pulls by combining scraps of fabric with ponytail elastics—to create user-friendly zipper pulls—it’s really as easy as 1-2-3.

Mary’s clever Reminder Tags prompt you to fill your car with gas or to purchase milk. Wrap them on your car’s steering wheel and avoid being stranded on the side of the road with an empty gas tank. Don’t ask how we know this!
