Project #2

Sweet! Two projects completed…

Granted, I did them both over Christmas break. But they’re both complete! So, project #2 is a makeup brush roll that folds over and ties up to keep it all neat and tidy.

Here’s my fabric all neat and tidy…  DSC00015

And a better look at the patterns…DSC00016

Here’s rolled up, and unrolled with the flap-action! DSC00152 DSC00154

And open! As you can tell, it’s a little bit messy from use, but that’s the bonus of making this one. I know that I can throw it into the washing machine and pull it out and re-use. Yay.

This is just my dorky, artsy shot that I got excited about because you can see the top stitching that I did so well on with my machine. It was one of the few things that day I happened to plan ahead of time and execute.DSC00159 

So yea, that was project #2 and it was super, super easy.  Sweet.

Resolutions and Project #1

So, I’ve been a crap poster.

Duly noted.  Moving on. I am going to complete 52 projects this year. As well as lose weight, eat healthier, work harder in class, etc.

So project #1 was a case for the new camera that I received for Christmas…

My shnazzy Sony Cybershot point-and-shoot is now the star in my little crafting world. You see, back in September, I was planning to do a photo shoot for a friend’s band, and my crummy old camera dismissed itself from this world. All annoyances aside, I have a new one, and He is happy to show you all about his new home!

So this is the final product….

It’s quite wonderful to say the least, although it reminds me how small this camera is all too often.  Oh well… I love it. It’s just the right shade of cheery green with pops of orange and pink and white.

The loops are more complicated than they look. They were attached at the back, and the lower loop wraps around the front of the case and slides over the outer loop so that I have a wrist strap.  It works out pretty wonderfully if I do say so myself.

It was intended to have a little slip pocket along the back, but I got overly excited and forgot to put it in… Oops.

All fudges aside, I’m pretty fond of it.
