Item details

This pattern comes with 3 different sizes of camera bags, so you can choose the right size for you and your camera equipment! All 3 sizes feature a side release buckle on the front and adjustable strap on the sides of the bag. The medium size has one inner divider attached with hook and loop, and the large size has two dividers; the dividers help to separate lens and other equipment. Use your favorite fabric print to carry your camera in style!


The pdf pattern includes 16 pages of sewing instructions, complete with 31 step-by-step color photos.

Finished Size: Small {8” long x 7-1/2” high x 6-1/2” deep}

Large {14” long x 7-1/2” high x 6-1/2” deep}

Supplies (supplies in this list will make 1 camera bag*)

3/4 yard of Exterior Fabric (allow 1 yard for the large bag if fussy cutting)
1 yard of Lining Fabric
3/4 yard of Solid Fabric (for straps/binding) – please use quilting cotton
1/2 yard of cheap fabric (will not be seen in the finished bag)
1/2 yard of By Annie’s Soft and Stable (Soft and Stable is a 1/8” thick, foam sew-in interfacing; one of my testers also recommends automotive headliner fabric in place of the Soft and Stable – I strongly recommend either of these)
2 yards of 20” wide Pellon SF-101 Shape Flex fusible woven interfacing (or medium-weight fusible interfacing)
1/6 yard of Pellon Peltex #71 fusible one-sided Interfacing (optional but recommended: for a sturdy bottom)
Plastic side-release/parachute buckle (they should be able to accommodate 1” wide strap – mine were 2-3/4” tall)
You will need one buckle for size small and two buckles for sizes medium and large
Two 1-1/2” metal rectangles – available in my shop here, and also in bulk bags here
One 1-1/2” metal slider – available in my shop here, and also in bulk bags here
1/2 yard of 1/2” foam (or green craft foam – the foam I used is 24” wide)
Hook and loop closure (Velcro), 3/4” wide – for medium (1-1/4 yard) or large (1-1/2 yard) only
*if making the smaller sizes, you will have a bit more fabric left over as fabric requirements cover any size bag

I made the small bag for my granddaughter for her 13th birthday. It turned out adorable. The bag has many pieces but the instructions are very clear and assembly is easy.

Great instructions and fun to sew. I made the large bag as a gift for my dad and he loved it! I dislike having to measure out rectangles rather than trace around pattern pieces, which you have to do for almost all pieces in this pattern and is the reason I give it 4 instead of 5 stars. Will definitely visit again for future bag sews! :)
