Sew Crafty!



Yup, that's me! I must tell you, I don't sew. I never had to, my mom is a wonderful seamstress and has done all our mending and sewing since before time began. She did give me her old sewing machine, a Janome something or other, it can stich the alphabet, airplanes and aligators if I wanted it to, but it doesn't do a very good straight line. Maybe it's me.
Any who, I decided I needed to make myself a bag for my long lens and today, that's exactly what I did. It took me less than 3 hours from start to finish. I think I did pretty well, considering I made it from scratch, no pattern or picture. All of it, including the little owl is my work. Even the nasty-a-dog-could-do-better stitching!
Did I mention it's lined too? Felt on the outside, cotton on the inside. Is this good for my lens? I don't know, it's too cute for me to care right now.

Very very cute! Now you will have to do some applique (sp?) on your camera bag to match!

This is just too stinkin' cute! I don't think I could do that. I have a super duper Janome but I don't know how to sew and it doesn't seem to want to work by itself :)
