This particular project is LONG overdue. I’ve been carrying my camera around in a ratty shoe bag for way to long. I was really inspired by this amazing knitting bag that Amanda made. It made me realize that my camera bag could be a simple drawstring pouch.
After making my Far Far Away II Birdie Sling, I was totally psyched to make my camera pouch out of the same collection. I’ve never made a lined drawstring pouch before, so I worked out a little mock up in muslin fabric and figured out the perfect way to make it all come together.
I used the blue Owl and the Pussy Cat fabric for the outside with some scraps of the grey Roses for the contrast top. I quilted circles with orange thread around the suns with batting underneath the fabric to add a little padding. I love how this looks! For the inside of the bag, I used the orange Man in the Moon print and did some more circle quilting around the moons. I put another layer of batting beneath the lining fabric too.
The drawstrings are actually a grey shoelace that Andrew had that he never used. My favourite detail is the little hexagon tabs I added to the end of the drawstring. eek! Too cute.
I’m so excited by how this turned out! I love it so much and can’t believe I waited so long to make this for my camera. I can finally check this off ‘My List of Crafty Things to Do‘!
p.s. i wanted to show my camera with the bag, but couldn’t since I was using it to take the photos!!
