I never leave the house without two things – red lipstick and my point and shoot. I recently acquired a new camera, which was smaller than my old one and it’s case was too bulky for my bag. I decided to sew a new pouch using some leftover fabric and a piece of cord.
This is an easy project and quick – I finished this in less than a half hour. Let’s get started…..
Cut two pieces of fabric and one piece of quilt batting 5″ x 16″. Â Place the two pieces of fabric right side facing, and lay them on top of the quilt batting – pin together.
Place the cord in between the pieces of fabric 2″ from the end and pin into place.
Sew around three sides, leaving the cord end open. Trim excess cord.
At the top of the sewn edge, locate the center and measure out 2 1/2″, mark with a fabric pen. Then measure 3 1/2″ down and mark, draw a line and sew. Cut off excess fabric.
Turn right side out, fold in raw edge and sew.
Fold up the cord end, it should measure 5″ in length, pin, and stitch up the sides.
A new camera pouch!
