I had a super busy weekend and was able to get lots of work done, and still made this butter! It’s super simple and I can’t believe it has taken me this long to realize how easy butter is to make. It’s just one ingredient, heavy whipping cream and you can either shake it in a jar for a long time or use a food processor.
I used the later and it took about 5 minutes on high. I also added some salt to mine for taste. You will be able to tell when it’s done because there will be no more liquid and you can use a rubber spatula to scrape it out. I put it in a bowl and folded in some honey to make honey butter because, well honey butter! I also want to try to make some mulberry butter this summer after my mulberry trees have berries. The possibilities are endless, enjoy! Let me know how it turns out.
I’ve been wanting to make a cover for the strap of my camera so I don’t look like a tourist with the factory strap. I had some time since we got all that snow so I sat down and made one, which didn’t take much time at all! If you make one you’ll have to measure out your strap. Mine is a Nikon and it was 20 1/2″ long and 1 1/2 ” wide. I cut the fabric out 22″ long so I could fold it over twice on each side and sew a 1/4″ hem. I made it 4″ wide so I could fold in in half and sew the seam. For whatever reason my machine would only sew a zigzag seam so yeah…, oh well if that’s the worst that happened! After everything is sewn use a safety pin to turn it right side out by pining an end and running it through to the other side. I also used a safety pin on the end of my camera strap to feed it through the cover. I made mine fit snug on the ends so that it wont ride up when I’m using it, but you can make yours however you want!
I had some fabric left from my kimono that I liked so I used that and then made another one out of some peppermint fabric that a friend had given me. I was saving it for the perfect project but I tend to do this with things and then they never get used! I had originally planed to make a pocket for my lens cap, but my cap is quite a bit wider than the strap so it would have to really stick out. Maybe I’ll add one later, we’ll see, but again up to you!
