It makes me laugh that hubby is now beginning to take my sewing for granted. (After all, it was only March this year that I got my sewing machine out and started to use it regularly!) He has such faith in my ability that he keeps on suggesting things for me to make.
When we recently purchased a wee point and click camera he immediately asked if I could make a case for it. Here's what I came up with:
It was loosely based on this tutorial, but I took quite a few liberties.
The outer fabric has stiff interfacing. The inner fabric is machine quilted with two (thinnish) layers of batting. I was going to use press studs for closure, but changed my mind at the last moment so had to hand sew the velcro after the whole thing was sewn together... not a good idea!
The bit that I like the best (apart from the reindeer) is the pocket that I added to the back, just big enough to carry extra batteries and a memory card. The pocket was made by adapting this tutorial (thanks Fay for pointing me in the right direction)
The case was a bit fiddly to sew in places but all in all it came together well. Hubby is really pleased with the result and when offered the case for our old camera instead, he refused it saying that it wasn't as cool!- Its so good to be appreciated!
I will announce the winner for my giveaway tomorrow. So I will keep it open for a little bit longer than originally stated. Good luck everybody.
