new camera = new case
hmm. maybe i should have made a pattern first? this was a "throw it together super fast because i can't sleep and i found a scrap that was perfect" kind of project. i was actually supposed to be cutting up pieces for ornaments to sell at the craft show!
but, most importantly, my *new* panasonic lumix has a padded case to help protect it in my purse. after my nikon's screen got smashed, i thought that would be a good idea. and i really like my new camera, it takes much better pictures than the coolpix i had, and i haven't even read the manual yet. i should make another case for my apex video camera, it fits in this but just barely.
so next time, i will think it through a little better! i need to figure out how to sew the flap part first, then the case itself. the binding is bulky and messy. it has cotton batting on each side, i may experiment with something firmer for even more protection. am i reinventing the wheel? if you know a good camera case tute out there in blogland, leave me a comment - the way i work, i won't get back to this project for a year or two...
