I got a camera for Christmas
I am, however, extremely protective and paranoid so I got around to making a case right away.
First, I went to the nearest dollar store and bought an oven mitt. I figured the thick material it was made of would be perfect to protect my camera from any falls (or extreme temperatures, now that I think about it, haha)
I cut just enough of it off to fit my camera. Here is what was left:
Next, I took what I had in oven-mitt material and cut it into a rectangle, keeping one of the sewn-sides of the mitt intact, and hand-sewed the other 3 sides, as shown below.
I roughly measured how much fabric I would need at cut it out. I LOVED this print... I got it a longg time ago, probably at Wal-Mart. It feels like canvas, but is (obviously) much cuter
As you can see, I folded it in half, and then sewed along 2 sides to form a bag of sorts. Next I turned this inside out and shoved my oven-mitt thing inside. I tucked it the remaining fabric into the mitt to make sure it fit, and then took it back out again and sewed up the edge.
Next, I quickly fashioned a flap to close the pouch I made. You can see the shape below.
I hand-sewed this onto the back of my case (and did kind of a crappy job.)
Next I cut out some velcro I had a sewed it to each side, first using white thread (which looks reaaally bad, I know and will probably redo in a bit), being careful that they matched up right.
Finally, I added a cute button!
My camera fits, though it's quite snug, and I feel confident I could chuck it across the room and not do any damage. Hope you all like it!
Any questions, let me know
Happy New Year!
