Black friday shopping this year, and I finally got the dslr camera that I've been wanting for a good couple of years now. I wanted to make a pretty strap cover, so broke into a stack of FQ's my mom got me over a year ago that I've been hoarding. I used this chevron tutorial and this strap cover tutorial for the actual cover. It's nice having a pocket for the lens cap, and it is super comfy!
Decided that I should sew some WIPs instead of starting new projects. I've been wanting to try some spiral quilting...mostly from the hope that I'd have less wrinkling. It took a ton of time...and thread! However, I'm loving how it turned out. I think if I attempt it again in the future, I might try to learn how to use my walking foot or get some kind of quilting guideline so I can line things up a little wider than the foot that I was using. The girls love it, and made for a nice use of some of the novelty scraps I felt bad just dumping. I did a teal color for the binding and LOVE how that ties in all the other colors!
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
