When my husband bought me a SLR camera, I knew I wanted to make it distinctive, so I made a camera strap cover for it. You can too!
Fabric – I bought a precut Jelly Roll at Joann’s, but you can use any scrap fabric.
Fusible Fleece – also available at Joann’s. (more…)
As it turns out, there really was a sewing machine inside that box! I opened it up, and of course decided that the best course of action would be to read the instructions first.Seeing as how I have not sewn anything since junior high home economics class, I had no reference point for reading these directions. They may as well have been written in Japanese. Daryl’s mom came down (more…)
In this box is a sewing machine. Not just any sewing machine – MY sewing machine. You might ask me how you could be sure that there really is a sewing machine in the box. I could be lying to you.

This shirring top I made was a bit of a disaster. The instructions, although good, wouldn’t work all that well w/ my big gun sewing machine. Betty Brother doesn’t like elastic thread. Not at all.
Thankfully Sally Singer doesn’t mind it so much. I still haven’t gotten the hang of it. I need more practice. But for now, the girls have a cute top to start with & their dolls match them.
