Colts Neck, New ...
Here is my new canvas Camera Bag / Man Purse. It’s 7 inches wide and 10 inches tall. This is mine and I’m making two more for friends.
I used Brown canvas, foam (to pad the sides and bottom of the bag), piping, and hardware: zipper, d rings, and a buckle.
I copied a faux-Leather camera bag I had bought from a thrift store
If you buy a piece of fabric only get 14" (of a 55") bolt (inches)
cut the strap, 4", from the width of the bolt – then fold and press and sew for a strap that 1.25-1.5" wide
You also need some foam:
you want the width of the bag to be 4 inches all around so keep a close track on the seam allowance these measurements give.
I know these are not super-complete instructions, but figuring it out is have the fun…right?
