Felted Camera Case

Felted Camera Case

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!

      Hi Sarah!

      I took the pattern down for a quick revamping… oh, 2 months ago. It was meant to be about 2 weeks :P I’ll put some time in to the last little touches this weekend and let you know when it’s back up! Sorry for the inconvenience!

        Please don’t apologize. Thanks so much for even making it available. I’m still trying to get my bearings with felting, so any pattern I can use as a guide is a great tool for me.

        Thanks!

    This is real good I love that you also included different size patterns for different size cameras. I can’t ever find a big enough pattern of a camera case that will fit my camera. Also the case in the pics is real pretty.
