Do you know hine’s etsy shop? She sews the cutest camera and mobile cases I’ve seen so far. Those, for example, I’m obsessed with for quite awhile now. Since I forgot my camera starting February in a coffee shop in Hamburg, I finally got a new one. But of course I also need a new case to
Since I forgot my camera starting February in a coffee shop in Hamburg, I finally got a new one. But of course I also need a new case to put the one in, right? So I let myself get inspired by hine’s camera cases and created my own little one from felt.
Sketching, measuring, color choosing.
I went for blue felt because my new Canon is blue as well. I liked the green in the inside of hine’s camera as well. But for the outside I still wanted another color and in my opinion the best choice for this was brown.
Furthermore, I adjusted the design to my liking and – voilá – I started sewing.
Thankfully I am living very closely to Edelhoff Kreativkaufhaus (very much recommended, btw.), so I don’t have to go far to get some crafting supplies if I need them and have the urge to make something right now.
With the buttons I just decided to go with what they have in the shop and let myself get inspired by it. All seams I did by hand only for the ones on the site I used my sewing machine. Especially for hiding the lining more in between the felt pieces.
There were some more troubles with the lining: It wasn’t supposed to be to thick, but what I had at home was of course exactly that. So, I had to go on my bike again and get some thinner lining.
Finished. Then I realized, I seriously have no practice in stitching (and do you see how crooked they are?). But I guess, the case looks pretty good after all, at least I am very satisfied with it.
I just love how the blue stitches look on the brown felt. 🙂
