Ruffled Camera Strap Cover

    I gave sooo many handmade gifts. modest mermaid dolls, pillow covers, table runners, hand toasties, little girl dresses… etc.

    I’m completely in love with that! Very inspiring! I just realized that I’ll need to make myself a strap cover for my new camera. Thanks for the idea! This year I was a total slacker on gifts period. The only handmade one I gave was a subway art sign to my parents.

    Cute! I was sick most of December, and didn’t get as many gifts completed as I’d hoped, but I did have lots of fun with glass etching pans. I’m hooked on etching cream now!
