Failed Project

I had about an hour of free time today.  I've had a little project waiting in the wings for a while.  I thought today would be a great time to get it done since it shouldn't take more than an hour.  Or so I thought.

Have you seen the cute and supposedly comfy camera straps/covers?  (If not check out this.)  I have wanted one for a while.  I picked up some minky fabric so I could make it.  I pulled out some black and white fabric scraps and got to work.  The cutting was fine.  The pinning and sewing was fine.  Then I realized I should have hemmed it first.  Duh.  So I had to pick out some stitches.  Then I got it all done only to find out that my seam allowance was too big and the strap cover wouldn't go over my camera strap.  Dang it.  After picking out a lot more stitches I was left with this.
Failed Project
I had to walk away from my failure.  I needed to think about what I did wrong.  You learn from your mistakes right?  I'm sure I'll come up with something great once I have more time to sit down with my pieces.
