Sewing a groovy camera bag has been on my to-do list for what seems like an eternity. For years now, I've been using a very tacky looking shiny gold zippered make-up bag that came free when I purchased some Revlon make-up. The gold bag has definitely been functional, but has done nothing for my image!
Anyway, with a bunch of planned holidays in the pipeline, it was time to step things up a notch and tone things down. I made the bag from bits and pieces on hand such as scraps from other projects and woven ribbon saved from gifts. In fact, the internal batting also matches even though you can't see it. I didn't have any batting, so used leftover scraps of my woolen winter coat. This worked a treat!

I used one of the clippy things you find on backpacks as the closure. I attached this underneath due to the length of the clip plus the ribbon.
Overall, I'm pretty darn happy with my new camera bag. I must confess that the workmanship is a tad shoddy, but I'm happy to overlook that...it's not a wearable garment afterall.
