A new camera case!

After working on getting the pictures loaded and everything how I wanted it online Sunday, which took a surprisingly long time, I decided to work on something I have been wanting to make for awhile.
I recently bought a new camera and decided I wanted to make a case rather than buy one. I had seen this tutorial for a cute camera case awhile back at Amy ala Mode. So dug out some fabrics and started in.
I added a long strap as I like to have strap so I can carry it if needed. I also made mine about a 1/2" wider than hers, as I wanted to make sure I could put the strap inside when not using, so wanted it a bit roomier. Don't ya love the little pocket for extra batteries?

I love how it turned out!

Isn't it fun when you take time to do something for yourself? Great idea and so very cool and your little battery pocket is terrific and you are unsure about doing a miniature quilt!! Silly you!

I love the sense of satisfaction of making something unique, rather than buying off the shelf. Clever project -- great finished case. Even your lining is adorable.

Yours turned out great! Cool that you can fit spare batteries in your pocket. My camera takes a special battery that won't fit, so I use the pocket for spare memory cards. Great job!
