After waiting all weekend, the mailman finally delivered the fabric I ordered. It is gorgeous, and I am having fun just looking at it and deciding what it all should become. Do you want to see?

This fabric is part of a collection called Summer Soiree by Paula Prass. I love the turquoise print and the bright colors.

This fabric is by Jennifer Paganelli and her line is called sis boom. I think it looks like something you would find in grandma’s attic, but with a decided twist.

Becky has requested a handbag, so the yellow floral and pink polka dot may be used for that. The turquoise print is my inspiration for my craft/sewing room. I was thinking of turquoise and red, but love the blast of orange and pink. I have no idea what I am going to do with the rest. I am sure I will be inspired by something.

I have another small project to share with you. I have been seeing custom camera straps and wanted one for mine trusty nikon.

camera 003So I made one. Again using my stash of fabric scraps, this took me about 15 minutes from start to finish. It took me about an hour to figure out how to put the camera strap back on my camera.  The fabric is Amy Butler’s Kashmir and I lined the inside with fleece. It is much more comfortable than the standard issue strap.   Cute, no?

I finished this bag for my etsy shop, but Becky decided she loved it too much to let me sell it.

I agree. I’ll have to make another.

My super cute new bag.

Body fabric is Amy Butler’s Gothic Rose and the handles are Seed Dots. It’s lined with chocolate brown, and I added a pocket and magnetic closure. Fun bag to make, and lots of room inside for all my goodies.

Love this project. All of the fabric is Amy Butler. I quilted all of the fabric in a diamond pattern, and the side is a patchwork of various size rectangles and squares. I’m ready to make another one.
