I decided I needed to make something for myself for a change so got out this lovely book which I bought months ago and have never used and decided to make myself an "Artsy Clutch" as featured on the front cover.
Also a good opportunity to use some of the lovely Japanese fabric I bought at the Festival of Quilts and some brightly coloured silk that a friend brought me back from India.
And here it is...
A camera case for my new slim line camera. It was unbelievably simple to make and only took an hour from start to finish - and that included selecting, photographing and ironing the fabric as well as covering a button. But I love it and have already cut out a second one as a gift for a friend. This one was really simple but I think there is masses of potential for embroidering, printing and decorating the fabric used... watch this space!
Talking cameras, Joe seems to have rescued his - or at least managed to rescue some photos - so a selection from the hundreds he has put on Facebook. I'd like to say there were some fabulous view of Sugarloaf mountain and the statue of Christ in Rio... but mostly they involve beaches, girls and beer!
