- ways to enhance your hobby experience
A few days ago my friend Janne at Spindelmaker
posted about a camera bag she made.
Like Janne, I always carry my camera with me, and with all the stuff that we ladies carry around in our hand bags, there is always a danger of scratching some part of the camera. So when I saw this brilliant light protective pouch that takes up no more space than what the camera already does, I just had to make one too.
I love sewing, but the things I make are usually more practical and functional than pretty. So this time I laid down some ground rules for myself.
1. I had to use a fabric that I wouldn't normally use.
2. I had to add some sort of decor.
3. I could not spend a lot of time being picky and particular, f.ex. seams were allowed to be a bit wobbly. My point was: just get it done!
So this is what I came up with: a shimmery velvet fabric, with a decor that, to some degree, matches the camera strap that I made a few months ago. (Don't you just hate the boring black and yellow strap that comes with the camera?)
I added a thin lining for extra cushioning, a drawstring for closure, and done!
Thank you Janne, for a great idea, and for inspiration to make it!
