Next Projects

I'm getting excited for my next few projects!  I have a bad tendency to start a project, get bored of it, then get excited by a new project and eventually lose interest in that as well.  I'm going to try my hardest to not do that with my sewing!  But here's a sneak peak of what I'm planning next:

I'd like to make a camera bag.  Even though I don't have a fancy schmancy camera, I do like to have all my accessories (extra batteries, battery charger, cables) all in one place while traveling.  I found a cute pattern in Meg McElwee's Sew Liberated:  20 Stylish Projects for the Modern Sewist.

The corduroy and navy cotton both came from the Goodwill store.  I paid $5 for 2 m of cordury, and the navy cotton is a queen bed sheet that was $3.  I can't go wrong with those prices!  I'm not super super in love with the color combination, but it's all I have on hand, so it'll have to work!

Next up is a skirt that I'm going to make out of a pillow case I found at, you guessed it, the Goodwill store.  I bought a second, plain white pillow case to use as lining.  I got the inspiration from a pattern in Sewing Green by Betz White.  Here's the pillow case I'm going to use:

When I finish this skirt, I'm going to enter it in Crafterhours' Skirt Week 2011!
