Camera strap cover

I have been dying to break out my sewing machine and since I had my last final yesterday I decided to make a camera strap with some scrap fabric.

First, I followed a tutorial that made one with ruffles, but had a major malfunction/ meltdown when I messed up the last step and basically wasted like 3 hours (it took so long because I had to reteach myself how to use the machine).

but after I remembered how to use my sewing machine and knew I had done the main part of the project right I decided to ditch the ruffles and go pick out a new fabric. 

So I found some new fabric and started over with a more simple instructions and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

And guess how much I paid for 1/2 a yard of the fabric?! $1.65 awesome, I know. And I love the print, it reminds me of a huge painting we had in my old house growing up. 

what do you think?

VW lovin

I can't believe it has been almost a month since I blogged or read/commented on any blogs. time is flying by! tomorrow is my last day of class & then a final Friday morning and then I will be senior.. in college. what the?! and Jimmy is graduating on the 14th. so weird.

on the topic of time flying by, I pulled an all-nighter last night and still haven't slept. last night while I was "studying" I fell in love and am still swooning over


I have to have one! can you imagine how amazing roadtrips are in one of these beauties? I will have this.
