Travel Gear Made Easy by Mary Mulari on Sewing With Nancy

Nancy 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 Mary joined Nancy on Sewing With Nancy for another clever sewing topic. This time, Travel Gear Made Easy is the online video feature. Mary has a knack of 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 step-by-step 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 nap, store eyeglasses, a book, and more in the back zipper pocket.

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

In the TV show and her Book , Mary even shows how to create the Easy as 1-2-3 Zipper Pulls by combining small pieces 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!

Nancy Zieman's Giveaway Winner

The randomly selected winner of the Ultimate Fancy Footworks book from Nancy’s Notions is Sue C.

Her comment is: I would sure make use of the “Big Foot” since the projects I will be making for gifts have several layers of fabric. This would be a very handy tool.
