After seeing a camera bag someone else made on another forum I frequent I decided to have again and make one for a friend for her birthday.  Smiley

It is a simple messenger bag style with removable padded inserts to protect the camera. The bag can used as a normal messenger bag if the padding is removed.

It is made with home dec weight faux suede, lined with a shower curtain (I wanted some kind of waterproofing and this was the best I could come up with at short notice Cheesy) The padded bits were made with foam from an exercise mat my mum was throwing away and more faux suede, this time from a pair of trousers! The strap was cut from another bag because I was too lazy to make one!

There is a simple pocket on the front under the flap and a zip pocket across the flap.

Nice!  I've often thought about making a camera bag for my two Canons... but I'm too afraid that I won't be able to make it sturdy enough for them...  I think you succeeded!

WOW! I never thought about making a camera bag. That is great! I am hoping to get a new camera someday soon, maybe by then I can make a bag this cool for it. Great job!

Your bag is adorable!  I love the matching oval doo-hicky for the shoulder on the strap.  What did you use to pad that?

OMGosh, this bag is amazing!!  Great work and fantastic how you recycled so much of it from other things!  I never would have thought to use a shower curtain as a waterproofing element...very creative!!  You've got one beautiful, professional looking bag and one very lucky friend!  Cheesy

Thanks for all the replies  Grin

I think using the home dec weight fabric for the outside helps.

I love recycling  Smiley

I used heavy sew in interfacing for the padding, the reverse is more of the faux suede same as the bag.

I was short of time and couldn't get any waterproof fabric and was just lucky to come across a black shower curtain!

Great bag!  Maybe a tutorial or some guidance?  I got a new camera in April and put off buying a bag because I couldn't find a fun one.  Now I'd like to make one! Smiley
