I always regret not taking photos during projects because I then limit my tute-making powers. Alas, this camera cozy was so simple that I'm going to post instructions without pics for those interested.

1. cut out 1 piece of focus fabric that is 14 inches by 4 1/2 inches. Cut a piece of lining the same size, as well as a piece of fusible fleece. cut 1 piece of batting 13 inches by 3 1/2 inches.

2. iron pieces seperately. center batting on back of wrong side of focus fabric so there's about 1/2 inch margin all the way around. lay fusible fleece sticky side down on top, sandwiching the batting inside. fuse.  trim one end of each piece so the corners are rounded.

3. using an omnigrid or ruler and fabric chalk, mark parallel lines at a 45 degree angle 1 1/2 inches apart. stitch (using a walking foot if you have one). repeat with perpendicular lines.

4. attach magnetic snap to center of rounded edge lining. i placed mine 1 1/4 inch from the edge but i'd probably make it closer next time.

5. stitch lining to focus fabric, right sides together. leave the short edge without rounded corners open for turning.

6. clip corners and curved edges. turn and press. attach magnetic snap 1 1/2 inches from top of the open edge. topstitch open edge closed.

7. fold the square edge up so that the magnetic snaps meet. pin in place. starting at one square corner, stitch all the way around to the opposite corner, topstitching the flap as you go.

(A little bit of photo trickery: it's actually my phone in there with the camera cord because i had to use the camera to take the pictures! Wink )

The fabric is a screen-printed Australian print that i'm in love with.

Really nice job! I love the fabric and you did such a great job with the construction.

Just one note: I have been told not to keep magnets near my camera, because it can erase photos, but that could just be my Nikon.

I really LOVE that fabric, it is amazing!  I made a similar pouch for my camera too and then was too forgetful to actually use the darn thing.  Great job!

This is really cute. I really like the quilting. It looks very well put together. If you don't mind, I may use your idea to make a  case for the Nook I am so impatiently waiting for. I think I can just make it bigger. Thanks for the inspiration!

of course I don't mind! I'd love to see it once you finish it. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
