Anywho, as I get back into the swing of things, I wanted to share a quick project with you. Got some extra fleece on hand? I love little projects that use up spare fabric. And yes, it's the same fleece I used to make my little pink fleece hat. Hey, sometimes you use whatever you have on hand, right??
A few weeks ago, as we were packing up to visit family for the holidays, I realized I didn't have a small case to keep my camera in.
My requirements were to be soft, thick enough to give cushion, and have a very basic design.
I'm sure there are camera case patterns out there, but I decided to wing it for a custom fit.
I laid out my camera on a piece of fleece and fit the fabric around the camera and strap.
Tucked it in all cozy
I folded over the fleece, pinned the raw edges together and sewed a straight stitch all the way down the open side and bottom (leaving the flap open).
This is what it looked like after sewing it together, and turning it right side out. Looks cute enough to be a barbie sleeping bag.
For an easy velcro closure, I cut and secured two pieces of velcro with pins and sewed.
And here's the finished case, with my camera tucked securely inside.
Like I said, it's very, very basic and probably more like a liner than a case (since fleece can get wet). But it worked perfectly for me. With my camera in this protective case, I tucked it safely in my purse for easy access to some fabulous holiday picture taking!
