Padded Camera Bag Pattern

The original camera bag I made, in this post, is one of my all time most viewed posts. And it’s one of my all time most pinned posts as well. But I wasn’t quite happy with the first version. So, I took it apart, remade it, and this time made a pattern! You can buy it in my shop, here

And then you can make your very own one of these

    You are awesome! I totally need one of these and I’ve been racking my brain since your original post to see if I could figure it out. Do you think it would work with a leathery vinyl?

  17. says

    Um this is amazing. You are so awesome! I love that yellow fabric. I am saving this… for a long time from now when I have the guts to try it. Or maybe I’ll buy it and send it to a much more talented friend to make it for me. Thanks so much for sharing!

    This is a great bag! We’re currently using a padded lunch bag with batman on it as our camera case (my husband’s choice :-) ). It would be nice to have a more feminine one for myself. I’m curious what you would say the sewing difficulty of this bag is? Easy, Medium, Difficult? Thanks!

    I stumbled across your blog doing a Google search for a DSLR camera bag pattern. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! I just purchased it, and can’t wait to get the supplies and make it.

    Thanks again!
