Received a digital camera for my birthday, and since it didn't come with a case, I did what any self-respecting crafty-gal would do, and made one.

Below is the pattern, and pictures of the case.  Use the pattern to cut out one outer fabric (I used heavy denim), and one inner fabric (I reclaimed a little boy's hawaiian shirt).  The photos give you an idea of how to stitch it together.

The pattern

I found it difficult to sew something this small... especially the top stitching around the opening and closure tab.  But I'm really happy with it.

This is fabulous! I love it! The detail of the top stitching, the huge button, the Hawaiian shirt -- it's all the stuff I love. I'm going to try this. Thanks so much for sharing!

Just one question: Don't you need some padding in there to keep the camera safe? I know a lot of cameras now have a nice glass screen on the back, but my Sony is all about the super easily scratched LCD!

Some quilt batting would pad it nicely. That's how I padded my nintendo DS bags.

Padding would help for sure... but I had a bit of trouble with that LOL!  The denim I used is REALLY heavy, so I wasn't too worried. 

And thanks for the encouragement here!!!
