Even though I have a zillion things I should be working on (number one being the raggy quilt I'm making for my Mother for Christmas), I decided to try to make myself a wristlet.
The first attempt was just plain dumb. It's HUGE!! More like a duffel bag than a wristlet. I'll be using it as a travel bag or something, I don't quite know yet.

Attempt number two was a teensy bit better...but still way too tall.

Unfortunately, I've run out of that fabric, so attempt number three will be different. I will not attempt number three until I at least have the fabric cut for the quilt!

I ran over the river to Joann's a week ago or so and I couldn't resist buying these minty things:

Is that not the cutest little tin ever???? The mints are ok, I think they are fruity, but it's all about the tin.

I've signed up for a digital photography seminar this Saturday. It promises to teach me about composition and lighting. I'm really looking forward to it.

Lastly, I've added a couple more card sets to my Etsy shop.

i read this earlier, but couldn't comment because of a squirmy baby... well, he's on my lap again so excuse any weird typos.

love the mint tin!! it IS all about the tin!! (i'm not into fruity mints!)

the wristlets look cute. it's hard to judge the size in a photo. love the fabric.

The "wristlets" look nice - like the fabric. Can't really tell the size from the photo but if they are not wristlet size they'd make a great knitting carry-all - especially that top one.

Your pictures all look so professional since you set up your light box. I'm going to have to have hubby take a look at it.

Let us know what you learn in your photo class.

So I picked up some clip lamps at WalMart and took some pictures in my light box and they didn't turn out too well. I'm going to have to go take a look at the tutorial you linked in that post.

That fabric is so cute. I hope you can find a use for the wristlets that didn't turn out so well. They look nice, it's just hard to tell the size from the picture.
