I haven't posted in ages, but I have been lurking. Figured it was time to see what you all thought of my newest creation!

This was meant to be a Christmas gift for a friend of mine, but well it took longer than I expected! She wanted a new bag for her fancy new DSLR camera, something padded and with a separate area for an extra lens. Anyway, here are the finished photos.

(...how annoying that spam prevented snagged me. Sad Here's a link to my pictures on flickr:)

Beautiful work!  I'm sure your friend will agree it was worth the wait.

I am an apologist for the spiders.

Just treat me no differently than you would the Tarantula Queen.

It looks great!

I love the divider you made for the extra lens  Smiley

Is the bag padded?

Yeah. The outer fabric was actually too lightweight I thought, so I interlined it to some black cotton canvas I had, basically just basting the outer piece to a matching canvas piece and treating the two from that point on as one piece of fabric.  Then interfacing and my current favorite -- fusible fleece!

I love the padding you get from fusible fleece, and it's easy to sew with (I actually find it easier than sewing with regular iron-on interfacing on the 'bottom', as that somehow tends to drag in my sewing machine, haven't figured THAT one out yet...).  Just is sometimes a bear to get seams to lay flat/turned as well as I'd like, even after trimming the excess fleece out of the seam allowance.

I will have to look for some fusible fleece (It's not that easy to get hold of in the UK) I need to make a bag for our new camera  Smiley
