Travel accessories for birders

This blog was started almost 3 years ago and has been gathering dust ever since. Time to reactivate it and show you what I have been working on.

I love to combine my interest in birding with my sewing. Lately there seems to be an increase in the number of fabrics which have birds incorporated into their design. I can't resist them!

As a traveller these luggage handle wraps have been a godsend when collecting our luggage from the baggage carousel. We discovered that tying a brightly coloured ribbon to the handle didn't work......almost everyone else had the same idea! Purchasing a bright red suitcase meant we had fewer suitcases to check out on the belt but it seems there were more and more people doing the same. However a brightly coloured fabric wrap on the luggage handle proved to be the perfect solution.
Of course I couldn't stop with the suitcase identifiers! Every traveller these days needs a passport and so a passport holder with room for all the other necessary travel documents was a must have! A picture of a bird on the front of it wasn't a requirement but it sure does hint to the custom officials why you have all that optical equipment in your carry-on!
