Ruffled Camera Strap Cover

Ahhhhhhhhhh!


That's what my neck says when I put this on.




I originally had just the grey w/yellow polka dot fabric covering the strap, but it did nothing for me; athestically or comfort wise.
So, my solution was to re-vamp it!


This is what it is now!


And I love it!
I may even do a tutorial on it, it's that easy!
We'll see.

What I Did Today




So this is what I started last night at 10:30 p.m. and finished today at 5:00 p.m I did sleep in between but it took me about 11 hours to make. This is also the reason I got a new sewing machine. It was part of the bargain. It was a small price to pay for such an awesome machine. I even wrote an ode to it on my Facebook. I'm weird like that.


Oh, you don't know what it is?


Hint, it covers this:



What is that you say? Still no clue?

It's the blade to the Sky Ski. The first two pictures are of it assembled. It is razor sharp and really heavy. I have several marks to prove my hard work on it today. I shaved the top of my foot on it and sliced open my thumb.

I hope Woody is happy.

In the Beginning and SUPER NEWS!!






Here it is. The beginning of something great. Or so I hope. I'm starting my sewing blog and you are all here to witness it...hello? anyone? is this thing on?? Hmmm ok so today it's just for me because no one know about it, yet!
The reason for starting this is all due to the blog Crafterhours. I entered a contest they were having. It was all about skirts. I entered two that I had just finished. I didn't win, but when I scrolled down a couple pictures. There were MY skirts. MINE as is the ones I sewed! With my own hands! My breath caught and if it hadn't been 1:30 am I would have screamed like a littel girl! Or tried, my voice doesn't go that high. My skirts were listed as some of their favs!!!! I couldn't believe it! To top it off, Anna of Noodlehead posted one of them as one of her favs in the Flikr pool!! Oh my!! Two heavy hitters in one day!!! Is this surreal or what??
This has inspired me to jump out there full force and get my stuff into the big time. I suck at blogging so I'm hoping that having to post my sewing creations will keep the blog wheels churning. Here is a link to Noodlehead. Swing on over there and check out her amazing stuff!! As soon as PayPal confirms that it is in fact me who has been using my account for the past 9 YEARS and lifts their security thing off me, I am buying her pattern for the gathered clutch tut. I already know how to make it (she's great with a tutorial) I just want to be able to sell them!!

So what do you think? Are the skirts cute or what?!
