Crafty Sunday

When feeling uninspired, craft away:

A strap cover for my camera!

The fabric strips are mostly from Laura Gunn’s “Magnolia Lane” and “Poppy” collections (many purchased from Mama Said Sew), and were left over from a quilt top I just finished piecing.  I sewed the strips onto a muslin backing, folded the whole thing over, and closed it with a single seam which runs length-wise down the middle of the inside of the strap.  Very simple and colorful, and now I won’t feel like a walking advertisement for Canon!

Quilting in the Summer

Something new:

My first quilt, courtesy of the Quilting 101 class offered by Mama Said Sew, a funky wonderful fabric store in my favorite Old Town.  My latest ambition: a twin size quilt for The Kid . . . .  before I ask for a new sewing machine!
