This is going to be a good week. Tonight after dance class (during which they have a little Halloween party) the kids and I are going to my mom's for the week. Yay!
I wanted to sew a camera bag in time for the trip, so last night I put one together, loosely based on this tutorial for a little boxy pouch. I made it bigger, added an inner lining and two layers of cotton batting, and included a strap. I used a thrifted pillowcase and a zipper that I rescued from the trash after Steve threw away some part of his computer bag. I think it turned out pretty well, except that it's too small! Rats. All those layers kept shifting around so I kept sewing farther and farther from the edge to snag them all, and it came back to bite me.I can get my camera in if I really stuff it in there and yank on the zipper, but I don't want it to be like that. I guess this week I'll just have to use our boring old black leather camcorder bag. I do plan on making another, bigger one when I get back home and using this little one as a prototype.
In other crafty news, I sewed these four grocery totes for a friendand two more knitting needle rolls for a swap. I forgot to photograph the rolls before I packaged them up, but I'm sure you've seen enough needle roll photos anyway.
