So how do you fill the day before you go on holiday?? I found myself whipping up a camera bag. The day before you go on holiday focusses the mind and prioritises the sewing to be completed..  A new case for new camera, what else? Oh yes the sun dress for my daughter that doesn’t quite fit:)!!

I knew that I would inevitable spend the holidays carrying round a bag with drinks for the kids, carrying their jumpers when they didn’t want them, my purse, phone – you get the picture..!

My experience of childrens drink cups leads me to believe that accidents do happen and they can spill.. so I decided I was aiming at protection for my camera so I could place it in the one rucksack with everything  else.

I followed this fab tutorial, and tweaked it a little:) It’s two layers of fabric, the outer plus lining, with a layer of wadding inbetween. Using your camera as a template mark out on a piece of fabric, adding an extra 3″ all round. For one side add extra length in order to fold over and fasten with velcro.

I found the case to be a little big, so when I sewed it all together and added the bias binding to cover the raw seam I altered the measurements.

I do love it when a last minute project comes together quickly, especially when it’s from my fabric stash:)

Next up altering my daughters sundress to fit.. I altered the straps from ribbon to cotton, and took the sides in by a couple more inches.

As you can see we had a great holiday:)

I was tempted to purchase this noodlehead pattern, and try to sew one up, but thankfully for all the familys sake reality kicked in re packing suitcases instead!

As usual I am hopping by Handmade Harbour to see what everyone else’s week has been like,
