My husband got a new camera recently, since he doesnt carry the pro one around due to the impressive size. He wanted a camera case to protect this one from scratches. I had some scrape leather from fabmo and thrifted leather skirts. So I made him this case. It was actually very easy with only 4 pieces of pattern that I drafted myself.
Because some of the leather was sample leather, it had gold imprints of what company it is from. I couldnt cut around it due to the small sample piece but I actually kind of like how it looks. Makes the bag more vintage-y. I used a regular sewing machine setup with thick thread and sewed it with no problem. Only thing was -my machine/feet did not reverse easily on leather, so to reverse, I had to turn the leather around.
When this one breaks, I think I will make him another one with the seams facing outside – it feels more durable that way!

Very cool. What kind of camera is that?
he bought this one:
(he got it for cheaper on ebay though)
and he moded it to make it look old and vintage-y with black tape and all. 🙂
Holy crap, that price! I would so pad the pouch an inch thick on all sides for something with that price tag, lol.
hahaha 🙂 i know what you are saying! the camera itself is very sturdy though!
Very nice! I like the gold imprint, too, it adds more character. 🙂
lol, literally! 🙂
