It's been in my head for a while

Camera bag for me

This bag has been in my head for a while and on Sunday a few of us girls got together for a Sewing Sunday. I very rarely take my sewing machine but I wanted to get this bag made before we go on holidays(more about that later). I wanted a bag I could put my camera and one lens in along with my purse, key and phone. I am more than happy with it.

It has a nice thick comfortable strap that goes across my shoulder and front.

I also made a very quick pouch for my other lens.

While I was on a roll I made one for my friend Lorraine.

A very quick gift for my friend Julie who looses her scissors.
The stitchery is an Anni Downs one.

I just love that bag Leanne, are you making a commercial pattern for it as I want one. I love the fabric for Lorraines bag. Nice neat stitcheries too. Having some cooler weather has to have some compensations - enjoy the stitching and the looming holiday.
