Selfish Sewing

With my birthday being last week I decided to make myself  few things.
It was nice to sew something for me and to check a few things off of my very long list of things to make.

Last year I made a camera strap cover, but it was to bulky for me. I put batting on both sides of the strap.  My Mother-in-Law loved it and I was glad to give it to her. The extra padding was great for her.
Here is my new camera strap cover I finally made myself.

I love it!!!!  I saw a few people checking it out when I sported it at my husbands gradutaion.

Next up is an awesome purse I made.

I did add a flap with a button after the picture was taken.  After I put all my stuff in it the top was looking saggy and weird. The flap took care of that problem!  I used a tutorial I found HERE.  I love this purse and the pattern, but there are a few things I am going to change and tweek to make it more to my liking.  I will share those with you as soon as I get thenext purse made.

My final project I made myself was a springy scarf.

It's airy, bright, and springy.  This started out as a white gauzy fabric.  I shirred it and hemmed it.  Then I decided to dye it.  I used red dye and added more fabric than it said to dye at a time so it would come out a little light.  I love the color it turned out.

I think a little selfish sewing every once in a while might be a good thing.
I might start sewing for myself a little more often.
I highly recommend it!
