Polka-dot Camera Case
I lost my camera case a few months ago, and had to go back using its original old and ugly leather case in a meantime before be able to make a new one.
Last week I got a piece of lovely heavy weight satin, which was perfect for making a cushion cover. I made it to match orange satin throw pillows. I just love these color combination - black, white and orange is beautiful together.
So, I decided to make a new camera case with remnants of these fabrics. I know it'll look cool once it's finished. Since they are satin, I thought it'd be more beautiful to quilt them.
I use white industrial felt as a cushion, and quilt two pieces of satin together before cutting a pattern.
I love to make my own compact camera case so that I can have a tiny compartment for my additional batteries - everything is in one pack making my life easier, and ready to go.
I also made a matching camera strap and threw away the old one which was so beat up - each pieces of strap' d fallen apart.
This camera is only two years old, but it looks like it' s been using for five years already because it is one of the tool that goes with me everywhere. I don't care about cellphone - forget it often, but, if I happened to leave home without camera, I always go back and get it with me.
