DIY Adjustable Patchwork Camera Strap

We all have little pieces of fabric we can’t bear to throw away – scraps that remind us of special people or events, or that just make us happy for no reason at all. This strap is the perfect way to turn them into something functional that you’ll enjoy every time you use your camera.


DIY Free-Motion “Faceted Fabric” Panel iPad or Tablet Cover

Turn a pile of fabric scraps into a shimmering faceted panel evocative of quartz and opal crystals, then use it to make a padded cover for your iPad or tablet.


DIY 1950s “Hepburn” Buttonhole Scarf

I call this the “Hepburn” scarf because you can channel either Audrey or Katherine when you wear it. It all depends on the fabric you choose and that je ne sais quoi you give it with a flick of the wrist.
