ETA TUTORIAL: http://creatinghappinessblog.blogspot.com/2010/02/padded-dslr-camera-bag-tutorial.html
I would post the tutorial in its entirety here....but it has lots of pictures, and I can't figure out an easy, non-time-intensive way of posting them here......
This is my first project post on Craftster. I'm in awe of all of the Craftsters that post. Normally, I wouldn't post anything except comments on someone else's gorgeousness, but I'm really happy with the way this turned out, so I thought I'd share it I think I'll post the rest of the projects I've made, as well.
I have a friend who's a photographer. She's been looking for a camera bag, but she didn't want to spend $100 or more on a lame black bag. I told her I could make a cute one. She took me up on that. She traded me a photography session for this bag. She chose the Alexander Henry citrus fabric, showed me some bags that she liked(which I used as inspiration and possible copying.....), and I took it from there. I looked online for a tutorial for a padded camera bag for a DSLR and found nothing, so I drafted the pattern myself. It took me forever to figure out what to use as padding.

Bonus: camera hand strap from this tutorial: http://photojojo.com/content/diy/diy-camera-hand-strap/.
For some reason I can't get the picture of the back and strap to upload, so I'll try to do it later.
Thanks for looking!
