Pattern Description:

This pretty bag has a little secret... inspired by my Frou Frou Bag, but it's actually a camera bag! The front and back of the bag is padded, and there is a removable padded bottom. There are thick dividers on the inside that you can move around to accommodate your camera body, lens, and other accessories. The strap is also padded for maximum comfort. And the sweetest part about it is that on the exterior of the bag, there are two front pockets and a back zippered pocket, perfect for keeping your personal essentials while out and about!
