Using what I have

I have decided that I'm going to carry my Canon point and shoot camera around in my purse for photographic emergencies. Of course, this was an occasion for a new zippered pouch! I was up early this morning and decided today was the day I was going to start carrying my camera around with me.

I made a padded pouch for the camera and a smaller pouch to carry spare batteries and memory cards.

The fabric is a cute Japanese fat quarter that my sister gave me for my birthday and I added little vintage button zipper pulls to the zipper.

Unfortunately, today's not the day for me to start taking photos. Joe is using my DSLR today and has BOTH of my camera cards with him.

And...I had barely turned off my sewing machine when I sat down to read some blogs and wouldn't you know it but Felicia of Fluffy Flowers fame posted about the exact same topic today.

That is way cute. I love that fabric! And it's a great idea. Much better than store-bought camera cases. AND, the battery/memory card pouchlet is brilliant.

LOL Great minds think alike :) LOVE your new camera bag. I've used the same one for a year. I got it from Tributary on etsy and I LOVE it. Must snap a picture of it sometime :)

Hi Karyn! I just found your blog and I love it. I really love your pouches, I'm going to have to make one and start carrying my camera around with me too. Have a great weekend!
