4 Out of 5 isn’t Bad!

I have been on a sewing bender this week and it is only Tuesday!  I have made the camera strap cover, mini tote bags, toilet paper holder and the luggage tag from Friday’s post.  I love the camera strap cover and the mini bags (which are totally cute!!!) and I even like the toilet paper holder but the luggage tag just wasn’t what I wanted.  I am pretty sure that is because I am not the greatest seamstress and I don’t always have a lot of patience when it comes to sewing a straight edge and I wanted perfection!

Yellow and Grey Camera Strap Cover

The camera strap is lovely and just what I had in mind.  I had left over bits from making mug rugs before Christmas and just cut  them into 2”x3” rectangles, stitched them together and then added a solid black to the back side.  Easy and still feminine but JG can carry it if he needs to and not be too embarrassed.  He hated the pink one that I used on the older camera.  Since the covers are easy to make I am thinking of putting another one together before I put all the fabric back into the closet.  Having an extra tucked into the camera bag may come in handy someday. 

I need to take photos of the totes but I am out of light for the day so maybe I will get to it tomorrow.  It depends on my mood.  We are all feeling about as crummy as we did yesterday but there is hope that tomorrow will find us slowly improving and beating these colds!

Happy Tuesday!

Love that camera strap! I made a strap for mine but I don't love it. I need to make a couple more :)
