Here's the camera strap cover I made for my sister-in-law. I followed this tutorial pretty closely but added ruffles and a lens cap pocket. The back side was done with a crushed-velvet-like knit for comfort. Oh, and I padded it a little with some batting also for comfort.
I love that it went together so quickly especially after discovering this new way of gathering ruffles. Basically, you zig-zag stitch over some sort of cord or floss. (I used crochet thread.) Then, you pull on the crochet thread to gather the ruffle. This works great when you have a great deal of fabric to gather like for a tu-tu or petticoat. I wouldn't recommend using it on sleeves or other small areas where you want the gathers to be delicate and smooth.
My sister-in-law is amazing as a photographer and took our family photos this year:
I know right!? Stinkin' awesome!
You can see more of her work on her photography blog.
(Speaking of catching-up, I'm doing a lot of that this week after being down and out last week with the flu. Can't wait to show you my next installment inspired by Project Toddler Runway!)
