Last Minute Preparations for Italy

I am still doing last minute packing and trying to figure out how to get everything into my carry-on. It wasn't hard to get the clothes I wanted to bring into my suitcase but my electronics, plugs, adaptors and misc. stuff is not working out as well. I'm just hoping they don't tell me that I have to check my bag. It will defeat the whole purpose of packing light!

But I wanted to share a couple home made things I'm bringing. One is a clothes line. Yes, they sell things like this but why pay the high price? I had a lot of elastic hair bands that I make into my own clothes line. I tried it out in my bathroom. Not bad, if I do say so myself!

I also wanted more secret pockets, so using what I had in the house, I sewed a little change purse into Seymour's sling. I was afraid it would be like the Princess and the Pea, and he would find it uncomfortable to sleep on it. I am using it as an extra blanket in his crate to save room and to give himn something soft to sleep on in the plane. As you can see from the 2 pictures, it is not so secret since the stitches show on the outside, but hopefully it will work.

OK, time to get back to the packing.
And as usual, Seymour is sleeping.

  1. Hey Susan,

    I've enjoyed reading your preparations. Now I'm waiting to hear how well you did getting to the hotel. Hopefully the hotel will be comfortable and relaxing! This is just the beginning of your great adventure.
