Shortly after I learned to knit, I discovered knitting was much more fun if you shared what you were doing with other knitters. With a lack of other knitters around, I turned to the internet. But, of course, to share knitting over the internet, you need pictures. So, off I went to buy myself a camera. I bought the camera, and carried it around in my purse for a little while, but you know purses. They tend to be full of stuff that may just be dangerous to have near a loose camera. I checked a few stores, and didn’t see any that were purse-sized and at least somewhat
attractive. I decided I may as well use my newfound skill of knitting to make one suited to my needs. I felted it to give it a bit of strength and added an inner liner and a button to keep it closed. Voila! A purse-sized pouch that keeps my camera safe from purse contents and is even in colors that I like!
