I'm so happy to have these done...

I feel like I've gotten a lot done in the last week. I'm pretty impressed that I've kept up my sewing momentum. So here's a little look at what I've recently finished up...

Camera Strap Cover
I used some scrap pieces to make a camera strap cover for my new Nikon. My first try didn't work out like I wanted... you see I "thought" I knew the strap width and length, but it turned out to be too wide and long. It would have worked; it wasn't like it was going to fall off, or move around on me, but it just wasn't exactly like I wanted. So I tried it again and it came out perfect! I can't wait to make more of these... I'm thinking one for the Disney trip, maybe one for the trip to the Aquarium.

Burp Cloths
When cleaning out Megan's closet a few weeks ago I found a package of unopened cloth diapers. And then at JoAnns I found this cute piece of fabric on clearance. They were perfect for the free burp cloth pattern from YouCanMakeThis. I'm going to pick up some large rick-rack this weekend for the next set.

Puppy Dog Outfit
The Reliant Park World Series of Dog Shows is in a couple of weeks. Since Megan LOVES dogs (well, really all animals) I thought she'd enjoy going this year. And of course she needs a special outfit for the day. I LOVE how this turned out. I've had this Michael Miller fabric for years (and only had a yard of it) - I'm so happy I was able to use it for something so cute!

More Disney Sewing
I finished up a couple more things for Disney. The A-Line top is from YouCanMakeThis (CarlaC's pattern) and the fabric is from a sheet set I got on ebay years ago.

And would you believe the button Mickey top took longer to put together than almost any of the other Disney items? Its all those buttons!

The Disney sewing is also the last of my items for the Spring/Summer Wardrobe Challenge sponsored by TheFabricObsession. Voting opens to the public next week. I'll post information on how you can vote for my entry.
