Yesterday I created a skirt out of the top fabric for a special event with my father and sister!

I am currently creating a pattern for a bag which will be made out of both of these fabrics.
It will hopefully turn out to be the perfect size to hold my camera, lenses, bible, and
notebook . . . with possibly a little extra room.

Photos coming soon . . . you can stay updated here!

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom;
A good understanding have all those who do His commandments;
His praise endures forever.

Psalm 111:10

    I LOVE the fabrics that you picked out! Lovely! I love to sew as well, and have made a couple skirt patterns, and it was a lot of fun! :) I hope to be able to sell them soon, but we will see what the Lord has in store!

    Oooo I cannot wait to see how the camera bag turns out, I would love to make something like that for mine too!

    Love the fabrics that you are working with and I am really looking forward to seeing what you come up with for a camera bag. I have been thinking about creating something similar. I find that I am toting my camera with me almost everywhere and I’d love to have a better way to bring it along. Post soon, ok?
