DIY Camera Strap

Hi There!
I finally got my camera here with me, so I could take some pictures of projects I've been working on. I am doing a top secret gift for my friend that is getting married in November. Plus I hopefully will have some other gifts to work on for friends that are experiencing some awesome milestones in the next year!
I decided until I get some new attachments for my sewing machine, I would work on some easy projects. Sprucing up my camera strap was a little project I wanted to do. It's nice because when I get sick of it, I just grab a seam ripper and take it off. I am in love with this fabric. I might just have to break down and make a quilt out of it.
Enjoy!

DIY Wednesday?

Hi There!
As you can see this edition of "DIY Wednesday" is a bit lackluster as well as late. This week was our finals for law school and I had finals Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. (yikes) So, I thought I would just pass along some books I picked up at Barnes and Noble today. I'm hoping they will help my craft projects this summer.

The first one I picked up was the "Ultimate Sewing Bible"

The second one I picked up was the "First-Time Quiltmaking"



I should be back on track next week. Plus, I am doing loads of photography this weekend (five sessions!) So, I should have some pictures posted next week too. (http://www.kristamariephotography.blogspot.com)
