Making a modest swimsuit

I had bought this swimsuit earlier this year and it was a little low in the front and I liked how cute it was and thought it could easily be  made more modest. I bought some stretchy swim suit fabric at the fabric store and placed it where I wanted  it to go.  Black seemed the obvious choice of fabric. I used the lines that were already sewn in the neck line and just used some matching thread and sewed it in place.

Because the fabric does not ravel, I just trimmed the fabric close to the lines that I had sewn.

After it was trimmed it looked like this.

Now the little insert is in place!

See how I used the existing lines to sew in on.

There, I feel so much more modest!

Not that I have to worry about much falling out but now I really have no worries!

Summer outfit!

I got this picture on my email a few weeks ago from someone who wanted me to make some baby flip flops to match this outfit.  The colors were so cute and I couldn't wait to get started.

Here is what I came up with!

aren't these colors just so cute!

I made a headband to match to complete the cute summer outfit.

I love black and white and most colors look good with it but this coral pink is just adorable.

They will look so cute on little feet!

These will make a really great summer outfit!

My new camera pouch

Earlier this summer the strap on my camera bag broke, if any of you know me I usually have my camera with me every where I go.  I just have a small point and shoot camera and I have found that it is easier to take everywhere I go.  I decided to make another little camera pouch for my camera.  I had some black wool fabric that is quite thick and it was just what I needed for the pouch.

I measured the camera and made it about 1 inch bigger all the way around and the added the flap to the back side of the camera.

I sewed around the three sides and then while it was inside out sew the bottom corners , kind of like sewing the bottom edge of a triangle with both seams touching each other.  This will make a flat bottom for the bottom of the pouch.

Before I added the flowers I sewed Velcro onto the flap and onto the front of the pouch.  I then cut out 4 layers of flowers and sewed them all together and sewed a button in the middle of the flower.  Then sew the flower onto the front of the flap.

Kind of a cut little bag eh!

I usually don't have a fanny pack on,but I was listening to a book on tape while I was sewing so now I have 2 pouches on. It works out great and is easy to strap across my shoulder and be ready for all of those pictures I take!
