camera purse diy

I have been wanting a prettier & easier camera bag/purse to carry around with me because I always get worried I'm going to mess up my camera by letting it just bounce around in my normal purse. 

So.....I made one.  I bought a decent size bag from Target (my purses are usually big) & made a little padded insert to turn it into a camera bag & TADA!!! it works perfect. It will be the perfect tote to travel with, as there is plenty of room for my kindle, wallet & all my other purse do-dads. The insert is removable if I ever decide to change it out.

I used this tutorial from Tales of the Wife.  It was super simple to make! I have room for my camera (fits in the empty spot on the right), one extra lens & a film camera (like my instax or mini diana).  My kindle fits down the side & there is about 5 or 6 inches on the top to place my wallet & sunglasses.

I'm so pleased with how it turned out & love that the bag has the shorter handles along with the shoulder strap. This little project definitely gave me the sewing bug so I can't wait to try my hand at sewing some more projects this fall!  Happy Friday!!
