This morning I went downtown to help hang quilts for the Lancaster AQS show that opens tomorrow, and tomorrow, I head back downtown to see all the rest of the quilts. I still needed to create the insert for the purse that I bought to be my camera bag just after Christmas, and I figured there was no time like the present since I want to take my camera to the show tomorrow.
I snapped pictures like crazy as I made this, so I’m debating putting together a tutorial even though I think some of what I did would probably horrify people with experience sewing anything besides quilts. I don’t often create anything that has to have sides. It got tricky, and it also took all day yesterday. Really, all day from 10:30 to 5:00, I pretty much inched my way through the project figuring it out as I went. And, I still had some hand stitching to do while I watched TV and still had dividers to make today.
Here’s the inside. I still want to make two more dividers for versatility, but I don’t need them for tomorrow. I’ve got a pocket on the end for some extra memory cards. You’ll have to imagine the actual camera in there. I love my new camera so much that I honestly am not quite sure where my old point and shoot has wandered off to at this moment, so I didn’t have a second camera to take a picture of my camera in the bag.
And, here is the case inside my purse. I love that there is still plenty of room beside it to put purse “junk” because that means at the quilt show or on vacation, I don’t have to be messing with 2 bags. I can just toss my wallet and keys inside the purse, but I don’t have to worry about them scratching up my camera.
