Bird Pincushion for karin_ (Craftster OTT 20 swap)
– Didn’t come out the way I wanted because I was going to use the bottom/stomach area as a sachet almost but at the last minute, didn’t have time to get potpourri AND couldn’t figure out how to keep it all IN the bird…but she liked it 🙂
– Was the first project fully completed on my sewing machine! Wooo!

Photography Memory Card Cozy for Flip Flop (Craftster OTT 20 swap)
– Loved the fabric, should’ve bought interfacing :T
– I apparently can’t sew straight lines 😦 but she still liked it so I’m happy

Pincushion (aka Square Deal – can’t find the site)
– Black/white toile cotton fabric + teal satin fabric + light blue ribbon + 2 pearl-esque buttons
– First “for me” project completed on my sewing machine
– Easier than I thought, though I had some rough times
– Worst part? Turning inside out!

Collapsible Light Box (Instructables)
– So easy! Quite quick and very effective 🙂 Oh, and SO inexpensive! but so not worth photographing…
– It’s so great and effective! See?:
Before light box: note the dark corners and blurry-ness
In light box: only one light but still much more clear
In light box with both lights: so much more clear!
These are all sans-photoshop-ing, by the way. Verdict? The light box was fantastically helpful!! YAY!
