On the 1st, I made a new camera strap.
Um, this was supposed to be for someone else, but after I took these pictures, I put it on my own strap to see how it fit, and it was S-N-U-G! I was wrestling with it, and pulling it, and tugging, and finally I thought, "Hey, maybe I'll just keep this one, and make a duplicate!" After all, the camera strap I made almost a year ago is great and all, but I never really felt it was "me." This one is much more me than that one was! So I checked out the VW fabric and realized that my little scrap of it was not going to be enough to make an exact duplicate. But I'm keeping this one anyway.
It really is stuck.
The only way it's coming off is if I cut it off!
Okay, let's just move on...
On the 2nd, I began a pillow cover. I really wanted something that was for Valentine's Day that I could put on our couch, but I didn't want to spend any money. So I raided my scraps, for the first time ever! It was challenging for me - kind of like a really hard jigsaw puzzle. But at the same time, it was kind of cool. Some pieces fit perfectly together. Others needed to be trimmed to the smaller piece I was sewing it to. All in all, it turned out to be a great use of scraps, and it was a really good experience for me. Now I want to see what else I can come up with strictly scraps!
Oh, and the linen? That's completely and totally scrimped and scrapped and pieced so it just fit the size I needed it to. I couldn't believe it. I literally do not have one scrap of that linen left! If I was making this for someone else, I wouldn't have pieced the linen as much as I did...but since it's for us and our couch, I figured there was no harm in that.
So, that's me catching up for this month's daily craftiness. I probably won't post every day, but I do plan on doing something crafty everyday, and then just catching it all up in one post like this every few days. You should play along, too!
I call this pillow "My Scrappy Valentine."
Oh, and I might as well do the Blogger's Pillow Party again! I didn't foresee myself making another pillow anytime soon, but I guess the timing is good!
