My New Camera Bag

I got a new camera a couple of months ago.  One of those dslr cameras.  It's not top of the line but it does great as far as I'm concerned.  I also got a macro lens to go with it.  But what I didn't get was a camera bag.  You really need a camera bag if you get a camera.  I just didn't want to spend a lot of money on one.  They can cost close to $100.  More than I wanted to spend.  So the best solution, make one.

I quilted the fabric and then made the bag.  I put a divider in it to keep the extra lens and camera seperate.  Then I made extra thick quilted padding to insert just to give the camera extra protection.  I had the perfect button to add for decoration.  The best part is, I didn't have to buy anything.  Everything was in my stash.

I love the fabrics--and button you chose! Details like that really make the bag stand out. I can't believe you just "made it."!! You are a very clever lady!!
