Sewing Rolls

I was looking at someone's blog the other day, unfortunately I forget which one, I look at so many, and I saw a variation on the sewing roll I usually make. I decided to see if I could come up with a pattern that would look something like the one I saw. This one is so easy, I might even do a tutorial but that will have to wait until I'm a bit less stressed. Anyway, this sewing roll probably takes about half an hour to do and is just two pieces of fabric 6 inches by 12 inches, two pieces of fabric 6 inches by 8 inches for the pockets (they are folded double so you end up with two pieces 6 inches by 4 inches), I'll be better showing how to do the rest with some pictures but I'm sure anyone could work it out for themselves from just these measurements.

As for the stress, I don't handle stress well and at the moment I'm having to catch two buses to visit my husband in hospital, then two buses home again. I don't know if I'm just using the buses as an excuse instead of worrying about my husband or if I've just got out of the habit of using public transport. Also, if I do use the bus you can just about guarantee that I'll catch a cold, there always seems to be someone sitting behind me coughing all over me, disgusting!!!

These are beautiful, as always.

As for buses, and public transport, I think they are all VERY stressful. And no end disgusting! I hope your husband will not be there too long, and that you can leave your bus trips at the behind you!
