Christmas Projects And Gifts



You may remember my post about starting my Christmas projects.  I used all that beautiful fabric to make camera strap covers!  I made one for each of my sisters.


The straps have a patterned side and a plain side so they are reversible.  These were so easy and fun to make.  Notice the extra puffy look to these?


I used this fusible fleece. 


I cut a single piece of the fusible fleece just a little narrower and shorter than my fabric pieces


Then I ironed it to the patterned fabric before sewing the two pieces together. 


So simple!  It really gives the strap cover a nice heft and makes it soft and comfortable around your neck.   
In all our Christmas celebrating, I didn't take pictures of the covers on their cameras, but I did take a picture of my prototype strap cover...I made this out of some scrap fabric :) not really my style but who can resist puppies and I have been enjoying wearing it on my camera!


I also wanted to say how happy I am to have received this for Christmas!  An Omnigrid Quilter's Square!  I can't wait to start using it.
