41C = time in the sewing room 2

This idea has been in my head for quite a while it took our recent hot weather to get it out. I wanted a strap for my camera where I could could wear it over my shoulder and it be wide enough to make it comfortable and have my camera sit on my hip. I also wanted 3 pockets one for my lens cap, another for my phone and another for my keys and some money.

I was thinking of making a long one the other day, it drives me mad that it's just not long enough. there is a womens strap for sale at camera house but it's really expensive, it does look comfortable though. love the fabric you've used...

Oh my goodness...what a brilliant idea!

What a great idea, perfect for being the tourist overseas and perfect for just being out and about at home...hands free! (not to mention that ladies clothes never have enough pockets, if any at all) Now if the fairies could just write those pesky patterns for you! Go on, we will cheer you on, promise! Happy quilting Sue SA.
PS I think Kathy at MO would be a big fan of this pattern.

Ok I want one. How much?

I am assuming that the sewing room has air conditioning, as I don't know how you can be so creative and productive in 41C heat. Great work, I love it.

That's an excellent design, Leanne. I'd like to buy a pattern too.

Yes please, I was going to try to make one as a few of the ladies in our Flickr group have them, without pockets. What a great idea. They had leather on the edge and I didn't know if my machine would handle it. Looks fantastic.Are you going to make up a pattern for it?? Count me in too please.

I've been AWOL from tuesdays, but fully intend to get my mojo moving again. [I've been rather unwell over an 8 week period leading up to and including xmas :(] Looking forward to catching up with everyone soon!
