A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
We know your camera is your favorite toy so why put in in a lame generic bag?
Show your camera (or phone) a little love and make it a totally rad wrap bag to keep it protected and looking great while off duty.
Get that glassy look off your face! We promise this requires only the teensiest bit of sewing.
PLUS as pay-off you get to customize it with any fabric/strap combo you choose.
Cats? Sequins? DO IT!
WHY IT’S COOL
It’s a camera bag that wraps around the body of your camera while you use the camera’s own strap to carry it. Camera = Protected + Stylin’
STEP 1: Cut
Pin your template to fabric and cut out your two pieces.
A T-shape for the outer, and comfy felt L-shaped piece for the inner.
STEP 2: Sew Outer
Referring to the template, you want to sew together the edges of side A to A, B to B etc – with their right sides facing each other.
You may want to pin all sides together before sewing so that you can get a visual understanding of where each side needs to go.
This is the trickiest bit so once you get past the this step it’s all downhill, pinky promise!
STEP 3: Sew Inner
STEP 4: Flip it
Flip the outer bit inside out so that the right sides are showing outward.
The inner bit can stay inside out because we want to hide the sewn edges.
STEP 5: Tape
This will stick your inner to outer so if you’re not sure where to tape, have a look where the two bags overlap.
STEP 6: Slide
STEP 7: Sew close
STEP 8: That’s a Wrap
Go grab your camera (or phone in a Rangefinder Case with a strap) and place it inside the bag so that it is sitting snugly within the felt inside bit.
Pull over the flap between your camera’s strap and wrap the ribbon or rope all around.
