I made this for the Photographer's Swap. Smiley  I used a good ole Spartus camera for the "body" of the purse.  My partner liked green, black & skullies, so I tried to tie some of those in. Smiley


The strap is a belt & the "lens" is a Craftster pin. Cheesy




I didn't want to permanently line it because I like to see the inside with the shutter fun, so I made a removeable little pouch instead.




The great thing about using a belt is that it's adjustable for purse or clutch length. Grin




It's funny to see a camera being carried in a camera... Cheesy

Thanks! Smiley

Yep, just took out it's guts! Cheesy  It had an old, tearing strap on it that wouldn't hold the weight of the camera, let alone purse goodies so it had to go.

I got it at a local antique mall and cleaned it up a bit. Smiley

You crack me up! Cheesy

Thanks for all the wonderful comments!  She hasn't posted "action shots" yet, but she PM'd me and said she loves it - it's her favorite piece of the package, I think! Smiley

I'm not even sure what inspired me in particular.  I was looking over her likes/dislikes and it just hit me that I HAD to go to the antique mall and find a camera to recon.  My fiance & I went scavaging and we ended up finding this one for 5 or 8 dollars.  It was love at first sight. Cheesy

We found tons at the antique mall and then when I wasn't looking for them anymore, they seemed to be in all the thrift shops as well.
