Noodlehead Road Trip Case

Sharing a bit of my Christmas sewing early this year (well, the kids won't see it so why not?!). I bought the Noodlehead Road Trip Case pattern LAST Black Friday. So over a year ago (in this blog post here). And I've only just got round to using it. Terrible.

I wanted to make the kids one each, so they have something to take in the car, or take with them when we go to visit relatives etc. This is the perfect pattern. It has a few different options for pockets, and mine are a bit of a mish-mash. I didn't have any clear vinyl to make the zip pocket, so I went with  the flap pockets, and then made the pocket slots on the other side up. I wanted somewhere they could pop their crayons and books, and it worked out well.

I used 4 different fabrics which matched pretty well, and mixed them up between the two cases. Cutting the first case gave me a bit of a headache, the options for cutting out alternative pockets I found a little confusing. But once I'd done one the next was quicker. The same with sewing them up. I used my walking foot to quilt the outer and linings, then they went together relatively quickly.

I'm pleased with how they turned out. I've filled them with colouring books, stickers, crayons, temporary tattoos and little chocolates. I can't wait to see them open their cases tomorrow!

I really want to make myself a few of these now, they're so handy! I could have one for my paints, one for hand lettering pens, one for colouring books....endless possibilities!


  1. What a great makes. I had never heard or seen about the Noodlehead Road Trip Case but the look very handy. These bags will keep the car tidy.

    1. Noodle head do some other really amazing patterns too - their Makers Tote is next on my list! Perfect to keep the car tidy for the children and the craft room tidy for us too!
