Camera Strap Slipcover

I got MY very own sewing machine this week! I have been borrowing my mom's antique singer {METAL}, but the tension was REALLY off & it only had a straight stitch. I was so frustrated that I haven't used it for a year.

I have a few projects that I want to do, but when I found THIS tutorial for a camera strap cover...I knew that this would be project #1. I will not be posting ANY tutorials on sewing & don't look TOO close at the seams, but I am so happy with how it turned out! I also love that her tutorial uses a light padding on the cover. Ahhh!

So, here are the pictures. I had NO intention of being in the pictures, but I was so excited to put my camera back together that I forgot to take the picture.

This is a good picture of the top of my camera strap.

And this one shows the bottom. LOVE!!!

Well, I am off to sew two more so that I can change my slipcover to my mood. How fun is that! Go visit Tidy Mom...even if you don't want to make a slipcover. Her blog is amazing!

I will post the other 2 tomorrow!

My Valenitine's Card for Hubby

I just had to show you this fun card that I made for KC. I saw it a while back {here}, but procrastinated until last night to make it. It went together really fast & we both got a good laugh this morning.

This is the front:

and here it the back:

I just made a heart template & used only the top of the heart for one side & then flipped it & traced the top again for the back. Then, I took my pattern paper & made the bra & the thong. A little ribbon for embellishment & a heart "tattoo" & it was done. I love this card. It is hilarious!

Better Late Than Never!

I made a cute CHEAP Valentine's Countdown for the boys. It is a few days late, but I am living by the "better late than never" theory. To make the cute little containers all that you need is paper & double stick tape. I used some other embellishments, but it was really simple. You can find the directions HERE.

A great cause...

Recessionista is partnering with Soles4Souls to donate shoes to people in Haiti. What a great cause. Check out their post HERE. For every pair of shoes that you purchase..they will donate.
