OK, so this is my first sewing machine project. Here is mine and my booty to match:

I know the skirt clashes, but I'm much too lazy to change. You can see I sewed way too close to the top so the inside is sticking out. There is thread everywhere! But despite it all, it was a lot of fun and I can use it on my bike. Here is a close-up of probably would look like a project gone awry to someone with more skill:

Ahhh hooray!  I have been needing a camera bag that did not make me look like the World's Biggest Geek Ever (although, knowing me, I will probably accomplish that anyway  Grin), and this is just the thing.

Now my camera and I can shake our groove thang together  Kiss

Thanks for sharing it--and everyone else's looks great, too. (Especially BeginnerKnitter: for a first sewing project, this one is very ambitious!  I have sewn before and I am still a little intimidated by this bag.  Yours looks great!)

I have a hipslinger story.

Last night I went to a Modest Mouse concert in Columbus, so I made the bag the night before at 2 AM. Unfortunatly, I forgot to add a flap and made the belt a little too big. The whole concert I was terrified that I was going to lose all my stuff (keys, phone, license, etc... 50 miles from home), but that lovely little bag held up the WHOLE SHOW. Even when there was some violent jumping and dancing on my part. The poor thing even managed to hang on when our little area of the crowd turned into a mosh pit. Moshing at a Modest Mouse concert? Who would have thought?

Anders and Brock made fun of my "fanny pack", but Anders was glad when I managed to keep his glasses in there without breakage.

As is typical, after the whole thing was said and done I managed to tear it along the seam at Steak and Shake where I was pigging out with friends.

I'll post pictures tomorrow (pre-op and post-op).
