Another geo-weekend

We wore out freezer paper stencilled shirts on Saturday and they were quite a hit! Actually, it was a great day at the Great Canadian Outdoors Expo. We did geocaching demonstrations for about 50 4-H teens. Some were keen, some not-so-much, but I think everyone had fun.

After we were all done, we walked around the show for a while. The smell of the funnel cakes was intoxicating, but we resisted.

We didn't resist at the fresh-cut fries!! Yes, Lera, I had french fries (peer pressure). They were pretty darned yummy!

I have to say that for the first time this weekend it really did feel like summer. It was so nice to be outside in the sunshine. It was hot but not humid. A perfect summer day.

Yesterday I got back to work on the challenge. I made this tote with the handles attached to the outside. I'm not really sure it was worth all the extra effort.

I've used up all but a little bit of the popsicle fabric and almost all of the pink polka dotted fabric on this tote.

I've been wanting to make a new camera case for a while now. I really had no idea how to do it so I made a long zippered pouch with a handle. I used heavy fleecy interfacing on the outer fabric AND the lining. It is super stiff and I know my camera will be safe. Honestly though, it might be overkill. I think if I ever make another I'll use the fleece on the outer fabric and regular interfacing on the lining.

Oh, that IS a picture of my camera. The batteries died mid photo shoot so I had to use the camera from school (which I have at home for the summer now for safe keeping).

wow! you're giving new meaning to the word stash busting. I can't believe how you just zip through all those bags.

I need to make a camera case too. There is a tutorial on craftster in case you want to use it to make another. (Although yours is perfectly cute as is!)

Wait ...

YOU ate french fries?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Oh, I bet they were good. I can just imagine. Mmmmm.

Nice bags. I like the handles on the outside. Too much work, though? (And, you probably won't be surprised but I have the same AH fabrics.)

Love that camera bag! Great fabric.

I love the camera case that you made! I really think I need to make one for my small camera... Right now I just use this store bought plain case that is pretty boring and a pain to carry around.

Hey, that camera looks awefully familiar. What kind is it? Glad you had fun and that your groovy shirts were a hit. I knew they would be. I do love that scribbly looking tote but I think it would look good with the handles on the inside too.

Did I see the words Fried Mars Bars? Wow... I can feel a diabetic coma coming on just by looking at it. :*).

I love your bags!!
