So my crafting bug hit again when I stumbled across Hine on Flickr. I then went and watched her cute video and etsy. The bug was hot! I had felt, I had time, and I had a need to craft, hence the Felt Camera Case knockoff.
Pattern: None but a knockoff of Hine on Flickr
Fabric Used: Wool Felt…yup the real stuff
Notions Used: Buttons
I was happy to use up some of my wool felt that I collected from the Clearance Section at JoAnn’s. I knew I needed to breakout the better stuff because this case would be seeing a lot of action as it tumbles around in my bag daily. In fact, these pictures were taken after a week of use and abuse in my daily work bag. The rest was scraps of fabric and buttons from the stash. I was happy to find some silver detail buttons because they just seemed to fit the occassion so well.
For easy access I decided to use elastic for my closure and I am very happy I did. It makes my daily opening and closing very simple. I covered the attachment holes by gluing on my label.
The one change I would do if I ever made another, of which I have no real intention, is to make the card holder deeper or give it some closure. Other that that I think it is perfect for me. It is so cute and perfect for my needs.
