Ahem...there just might be be a give-away involved.
It happened yet again.
I call it my "craft urge".
On Sunday, my sister and I made our way to the brand new Joanne's Fabric Store. We were armed with about 15 coupons each.
Why, you ask?
Because it's coupon commotion week, of course.
However, this visit was different.
I knew exactly what I wanted to make.
I was not going to be drawn in by all the bells and whistle's.
I was not going to buy fabric to make an apron. (I did)
I was not going to buy baby onesies with the cutest little iron-ons you've ever seen. (I did)
I was going to buy material to make myself two, padded, camera strap covers.
If you own a larger camera, you know that those camera straps DIG.
Yeah, that's right, DIG!
I didn't want fabric that was too cutesy.
I don't want to come across as the complete amateur that I am.
So, I settled on these two textiles.
Don't these just have "I'm serious about taking pictures" written all over them?
But, it don't matter.
I like em'.
I used this simple Simon tutorial from Cluck.Cluck.Sew.
I sewed those babies up. I guess I thought I might like "different occasion" camera straps.
I named them "Paisley" and "Shasta".
Boy, do they ever feel luxurious on my neck.
But after I slid Paisley on. I realized, I wouldn't be changing her ever again!! It was a bit of a snug fit. That being said, "Shasta" is looking for a home.
And that is where YOU come into the picture. (no pun intended)
I had this great idea to give one to you!
No, I never plan on selling these.
I am not a seamstress.
I do not guarantee my work.
But, hey, who would turn down a lovely little camera strap, padded with a fleecy soft baby blanket.
O.K., you might if you hated the color.
Or, if you don't have a camera strap to cover.
Or, if you like naked camera straps.
But other than those reasons, I can't see why you wouldn't want this.
It fits a camera strap that is 22 inches long and no more than 2 inches wide.
The red on the strap is quite a bit deeper than it shows in the picture.
So go ahead, leave a comment and you will automatically be entered into my very first give-away.
I might add, that your chances are very good!
Being that this is just an eensy-weensy baby blog, just barely born!
You have through Thursday to enter.
And because this is the "Peanut Gallery". I must add a picture of this peanut!
Something about it is deeply disturbing.
I think I'll name it.."The calm before the storm"
Don't all families own a machete?
I'll be adding a Mr. Mcklinky to next week's Mom n' Me Monday post.
So get in the picture, mamma!
I'd love to see them!
