So pretty.  Looks like a photo! 

Wish my neighbors were as considerate.  Not even 3a is too late for a hammer, a band saw, slamming doors, etc.
12  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Scarf Camera Strap on: June 28, 2016 02:09:12 PM
Maybe a year or two ago, i saw a photo of a scarf camera strap that i think was on Pinterest.  I kind of put it in the back of my mind for a while.  Then walking through the dollar store a couple of weeks ago, I saw that they had long scarves.  I grabbed one.  After all, it was only a buck.  And actually, I had to cut it in half to be the right length, so I can get two out of one.

The black ends are actually made from material I cut from a thrift store skirt that I had purchased for $1 a while back and just had it in my stash.  I am not counting out how many of these I can get out of the skirt! 

I had to pick up the hardware, black chain maille rings and heavy-duty black thread from the craft store.  Was able to use coupons on two of those, because of a second trip, so not so bad.  Because my camera strap bars were so narrow, I put two rings on each end to handle the clip.  I could probably get away with one, but I am not taking a chance on my camera taking a dive.  Same reasoning behind the heavy-duty thread vs a thin thread.

I used a quick dry fabric suitable glue on each end of the scarf gluing each fold over until the ends were narrow enough.  I hand-sewed the hardware into each black end and then glued the black ends onto each end of the strap.  That would've probably been strong enough, but again no chances.  I still hand-sewed each round closed catching some scarf in each.  I know it isn't the prettiest sewing job, but I am okay with it. It was difficult to get through the layers of glue.

I think it could also work for a lightweight purse strap for something different.

13  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Leather Mini Post-It Cover Book on: June 28, 2016 01:40:03 PM
I took another book making workshop over the weekend.  Afterwards, we had a scrap pile to pull whatever we wanted to make other things with.  I opted to finally make something I had wanted to for a while.  A cover for my mini post-it notes to carry in my purse without them peeling off and sticking to everything in sight!

It ended up being a quick 5-10 minute project.

I love it.  Did you use e freezer paper technique?  I've been curious about whether it would work, for the 2nd layer, if the freezer paper had to be ironed on over already a spot that had already been painted (and dried of course.).

Thanks.  I have to say that I did see one on Pinterest as the inspiration and then I tweaked it a lot!  It was getting so late last night that I forgot to add what the materials are.  And I just realized that his little red nose didn't show up.   Angry.

His "blanket wrap" is from an old fabric sample book.  The beading is from an old beaded necklace.  Brown felt round to cover up the antlers just to look cleaner.  Cut up cork for his legs.  And then a little pom-pom for his tail.  Obviously cork for the body, head and legs.  All of that was from their store. 

Then the little red nose was a half bead sticker I was lucky enough to find and the twigs were from the back yard (much to, my kitties delight!  I have had to take them back several times and even found were one had hid a piece under his pillow in his crate!  Little scamps.)

I created this lil guy several months back and then a contest came up within the past couple of weeks, by a local reuse craft store, so I took some pix of him and entered him into it.  (To vote, you have to "like" him on their page.")  Then I decided that I should share him over here.  I've been kind of slack about sharing new projects.  I need to catch up.

Curious, did you have to iron at any point?  Ask because I am wondering how the neoprene type material reacts to being ironed for my own non-contest related project that I am working procrastinating on.

Oh there used to be a lady on town that loved pink so much that she had a pink mailbox, pink swing, pink house and even drove a pink Jeep.  I can only imagine what she would've done had she seen Flink!  (She eventually moved out of the house and the only thing that survived is the pink mailbox.). But how inspiring!

Have you looked around for another tag inside that may have a style name/number?

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress Challenge - May
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name: Pea Salad
Brief Description: I am a big fan of most picnic salads - potato salad, macaroni salad, cole slaw, etc.; but I especially love pea salad. I made this batch of pea salad for an at home picnic with my husband, who did not eat any because he is wrong and doesnt like peas.
Project Picture:

A former neighbor made up a pea salad several years ago and brought it over.  I had never had it before.  Probably because, like your husband, my mother is wrong and doesn't like peas.  But my Grandmother thought I was wrong for not liking onions.  (It's more that they don't like me!). But for a family reunion, I made it with the onions, even though my GM passed away just over 3yrs ago.  

The difference is that this lady used plain mayo with salt and pepper, celery, red peppers, cheese and white onions.  I may have to try it with the bacon though!  Soon!
