Create With Me: Ruffle Camera Strap

Kari over at UCreate has a fun new monthly group craft project going on. This month was the Ruffle Camera Strap by Char at Crap I’ve Made.

I gathered all of my supplies and my camera and got going, fully planning on taking pictures of every step. I failed. But  lucky for you Char has great instructions on her post so you don’t need mine 😉

 Cutting the fabric, I was smart enough to cut out all of the pieces first instead of one at a time like normal (for me.) Who says you can’t teach and old dog new tricks. Now if only I could cut a straight line…..

 I know you can’t really see it white on white is hard, but here I’m ironing on the interfacing. Its my first time using it and I definitely understand why people like it so much.

I like the look of the contrasting thread, just wish I could sew a straighter line. I am learning that at least for now slower is better.

There it is! I like it a lot, I chose to use drapery fabric for is sturdiness. I figure it will be easier to clean as well especially with the muted tones.

I’m not a pro and won’t be setting up a shop anytime soon, but I’m pretty proud!
