Show Off Saturday… a little bag that was SOOO easy!


This week I decided to sew a little bag for carrying my big DSLR camera.

Yes, I have one of those big ugly camera bags with places for extra lenses and batteries and all that stuff. But I’m not a professional photographer so I don’t want all that when I go out.

All I wanted was a little bag that I can carry my camera in when I’m out with my family.


This was what I was thinking when I set out to make this easy little bag:

  • It had to be FAST and EASY!

  • I wanted to use foam stabilizer to make it pretty, cushy, and quilted.

  • I wanted to use one or two of my fat quarters from FIGO.

And I did it! Can you believe this little bag has no unfinished seams and also no binding inside or out?

The straps are disproportionately long compared to the body of the bag. I did that on purpose because I wanted to be able to easily pick up and carry the bag with my big camera inside.

So I sacrificed aesthetics for function. I try not to do that very often.


And now I have a darling, cushy, little bag that I can grab-and-go with my big camera inside!

Would you like to have a tutorial for this little bag? Or would you rather have me make a larger version to share with you? I could easily add a zipper or magnetic snap closures. And maybe even an exterior pocket.

Let me know in the comments what you think!
