This red/pink and floral is my new camera bag. I made the bottom wider so my camera would fit. Now my camera has a safe home when I'm out and I also have somewhere to put my wallet and phone and whatever else I need. I'm a little more excited about these bags because I kind of designed them too. I mixed a couple patterns I've used before, changed the measurements to what I thought would work and tried it out.
This loud print with stripes is the bag I'm using right now. I really love the fabric and the pockets. Again, I tried some different measurements and I think I nailed it. At least for now. I'm sure in a few months I'll need to try something else.
|Front has a flat striped pocket and a floral stretchy pocket.|
|Back has a large stretchy pocket.|
Before I finished up here I need to talk about my wallet that has worn out and needed to be replaced too. I've looked at a bunch of wallet patterns and haven't been super excited about any of them. I did try one and that is now Sydney's wallet because it wasn't exactly what I wanted. The gal that I bought my original bag pattern from came out with a wallet pattern recently. I love her bag pattern so much. She did a fantastic job with her instructions and made sewing in zippers easier than I thought possible. Here is her website if you are interested in trying out any of her patterns or tutorials. http://www.erinerickson.com/
|Ruffled coin pocket|
|Front pocket - can be made with a clear plastic so your id shows through|
|5 inside pockets - 4 credit card size and 1 deep pocket for folded cash|
Sydney has now decided that the wallet she is currently using is not sufficient. Could I make her one of these please?
