Back in the day I took photos using a 35 mm film SLR camera. I absolutely loved the images I was able to capture by adjusting shutter speed and aperture. Then digital cameras became the norm, we bought a digital point and shoot camera and I packed the SLR away to permanent storage. Our point and shoot is a good little camera but I’ve always missed the quality of the shots I was able to get with my old SLR. So this past weekend Mr. Stitch and I came home with a fancy new digital SLR camera – a Nikon D90. It seems like a lot more camera that the old 35mm I had and it will take me a while to figure out all the controls, but I can already tell that this baby is the bomb.
I was thinking of making a strap cover for our new camera and, as luck would have it, last week Lindsay posted a comment in Ginger’s blog with a link to a camera strap cover tutorial that includes a pocket for the lens
e cover. Lindsay subsequently published a post with her super cute completed strap cover; this was just the inspiration I needed to make my own. I went shopping in my fabric scraps and created a little patchwork strap cover:
I made two pockets: one for the lens
e cover and the other one is there in case I need it… one never knows when it may come in handy. Also, it was great using scraps – bits of memories from projects past. I can’t wait to play with our new baby.
Speaking of new babies, my brother and his wife has their baby last Friday – a scrumptious boy and my first nephew. I better get cracking with that robot quilt on my summer sewing list – I don’t want to gain a reputation for being a bad aunt!
