DIY Travel Gift Idea: Sew Your Own Roadtrip

Those of you that have seen my USA posts will know that me and a few people went on an American road trip last year from San Francisco to New Orleans. Well when I was racking my brains trying to think of a good gift idea for Christmas for the folk I traveled with, I decided to put some time into rustling up something personal which would bring back those great memories of the most awesome road trip ever! Of course I am a little biased.

Anyway, I had done some Googling and some Pinterest-ing, and eventually put this together. I found the map in the back of my work diary, the string and needle from a sewing kit I already had, and the only thing I bought new was the frame from the supermarket. Not too expensive but rich in memories! (Apologies for the cheese, but it’s true!)
