Last Nights Projects

I had a few projects on my to do list that don't take very long, but actually sitting down to do them is a different story! I wanted to make a zippered pouch with some of my left over laminated cotton from my chairs. I think it came out pretty cute, but I should have used some interfacing inside to stiffen it up a little. I have plenty of fabric left so I might try it again!

Next I wanted to make a camera strap and was searching for some tutorials. Then I found this fabulous one for padded covers! Now I can make a strap for every mood, or season... how awesome!

Anyway, these first two are a bit rough, but they will get better with time.

I had this Basic Grey fabric that I was dying to do something with but wasn't sure what. This was perfect!
Next I had some Alexander Henry fabric that I was originally going to use for something else, but the pattern is directional and ended up being too short for what I was going to use it for... oops! However, it was the perfect amount to fashion a funky strap, I love it!!

Next stop.. back to making more cards.. unless I can't stay away from these camera straps!

Revamping the blog

Well, since I've expanded beyond Pixels n' Paper over the last few years, I've decided to start a new blog and put the other one on hold for now. I still have my baby blog, but as far as crafting, this will be it!

The goal of this blog is to share my creations and offer inspiration to others. So many other blogs have been inspiring to ME, that I would like to keep the ball rolling! I'm so happy to be part of the wonderful world of crafters and bloggers. The internet is an amazing thing!

Previous posts can be seen at my previous blog: Pixels n' Paper.

Until my next post.. .ta-ta!
