Most of the projects I'm working on right now involve either basement cleaning which doesn't have much photographic or narrative interest or Christmas presents which I can't post about here if I want them to be a surprise. I've been having such a hard time waiting to post about them. However, I do have a few recent not secret projects to share.
I was recently asked by a friend to make a red and white custom camera strap cover. In typical Christina fashion, I made two. : ) But I have a good reason this time...
I simply couldn't find a nice, not-Christmassy white and red fabric, so I settled for purchasing a milk-chocolate brown, off white, and red print. It made a charming camera strap cover, but I wasn't sure if my friend would like it since she specifically requested white and red. And so I made another camera strap cover in solid white and red. I'll let her choose whichever she likes better.
Each strap is made of high-quality material, lined with velvet (to cushion to photographer's neck, hopefully preventing the some of the soreness from carrying a heavy camera), and adorned with a feminine ruffle and flower.
I'm secretly hoping that she'll choose the solid red and white one, leaving the brown and red one for me. : ) If the brown one is the one she loves, though, I'm not in trouble. Camera strap covers are fun, quick, and addicting, and I have enough fabric that I could make another one.
