Padded Camera Pouch

Project Description

What was your source for this sewing project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Padded Camera Pouch Link to website or photo What advice would you give someone starting this project? The construction is quick and easy, I made the medium size and my little Lumix fits with room to spare, the small probably would have fit perfectly but I like the medium size. As with all Michelle Patterns, the instructions are clear and concise with lots of photographs. The pattern called for a velcro closure but Im not a big fan of velcro so I opted for a matching snap though not the easiest to attach, I originally had a subtle turquoise snap but I ruined it so I had to use yellow. Obviously, you dont necessarily need to use it for your camera, I could see it as a little clutch and I love the draw string, it adds a little extra security for the contents. Visit my blog at

Q&A with tholtz

Shoestring asked:
I love this bag! Successful on every point. Can you tell me about the SIZE of the grommet you used for the draw string? It really adds function and style. Is the grommet readily available in fabric store, or did you buy it online?
tholtz answered:
Honestly? I got the grommets from my neighbour, they're ancient, from her old sewing basket but I have seen them in local stores. I'm sure they have them at Joanne's.
