I was inspired by all the hip hip bags (
) and was going to make this bag to house my delicious new camera that is rather bulky yet has no bag of its own: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=31379.0;topicseen
. However, being silly, I looked at the picture and then at my fabric, and not at all the steps in between, and I wound up with this. I like it a lot--it is still a little bulky and rather dorky, but it gets the job done and is very cushy and nice.
The black stuff is prequilted and from scraps from my brother's Halloween ninja costume from a year or two ago
The lining is yellow broadcloth from Wal-Mart
from scraps from a shirt I made for art class not long ago. The lining is actually a layer of quilted + a layer of yellow, and so the superthickness of the hem of the final product (essentially 4 layers of quilted and 2 layers of broadcloth, since I had to fold the hem over, and there's another layer of quilted in back for the flap) explains why the topstitching is so awful. Also, I am lazy.
Essentially the entire thing only cost $0.15 to make, because it was all from scraps except the yellow slide holder thing.
Also! It can be worn on the hip or on the shoulder, which is nice
And the fastening is velcro.
Without further ado!:
The camera bag is back in action and attracting more bees than ever.
The camera bag grew nauseated after being swung on the photographer's shoulder for too long, despite appearing equally cool in this position.
The camera bag beckons seductively for the photographer to approach.
The photographer falls prey to the camera bag's Jedi powers and approaches.
Posing sedately for its closeup, the camera bag winks slowly at the photographer.
Having misjudged the nature of the photographer's true feelings, the camera bag dies of heartbreak. It is disembowled and subsequently dissected for study by aspiring medical students.
I hope you guys like it. If it is absolutely too dorky for me to go out in public wearing it, let me know, but I am proud of it
Obviously, my camera wasn't in it when I took the pictures, so it bulges out a little more than it appears to, but not grossly so.
