52 in 1: WEEK 16 - ruffle camera strap cover

When visiting us last weekend, my sweet parents-in-law requested ideas for a birthday present for me.  I hadn't thought too extensively about what I wanted to ask for (my birthday isn't until next week) but I did know I had wanted a camera bag for a long time, specifically this one.  I told my MIL, and she quickly ordered it, and it showed up on my doorstep today.  It's roomy, smells good, doesn't look like a typical camera bag, protects my (meager) camera equipment, and the color is more beautiful in real life than any picture can depict.  Oh, and it sports a rosette.  Perfection.  I'm in LOVE.

I've been wanting to try Raechel's camera strap cover tutorial for a long time now, and I thought such a pretty bag deserved a pretty camera strap as an accessory.

Wow, it's hard to take a picture of a camera strap cover while you're wearing the cover on the strap with the camera attached... this was take 27, I believe.

I used an old shirt for the blue knit ruffle, and a Kate Spain fabric that I've been hoarding for a few months for the body.  Ruffling is the bomb!  So fun.  Love the little lens cap pocket.  Don't look too closely at my crooked stitches.

Running a 5K in the morning... I'm wayyy more nervous in than I should be!  Goodnight!
