Gold Roses

I made my most recent Weekend Away Bag (again from Heather Ross's Weekend Sewing) for my other sister, Isabelle. I sent it to her at Mary Washington for Valentine's Day. It is made with Far Far Away II roses in gold (also by Heather Ross!). I lined it with an orange polka dot I found in Waynesboro.

It, of course, coordinates with the camera strap cover/pad I made her for the new camera she got for Christmas. 

The tutorial is from Skip to My Lou via Sew Mama Sew's Handmade Holidays back in December. I made one for my camera first, a Canon DSLR, and followed her measurements (mine actually matches my yoga mat bag). 

For Isabelle's, since it is the smaller Nikon with a thin strap, I measured the strap first and cut the cover a little narrower.  

I still have so many projects still on my list from the Handmade Holidays posts. Maybe I'll get to them by next year!
