All good bloggers/business owners know that the key to a beautiful looking online presence are some beautiful photographs. Our cameras are always with us, whether on our phone, or the more professional DSLRs, we like to make sure they’re safe and covered from the elements, right?

The product of this project is a perfect gift for a photo taking loved one, or keep it for yourself and make it totally personalised. We have a TON of perfect fabric in the shop for this make.

Like this gorgeous monochrome heart cotton –

Which would go beautifully with this mini spotted cotton –

Or how about this funky Star Wars print –

With this white and gold cotton print –

Do let us know if you make the pouch and what fabrics you decided to use! Use #showcrafty on any social media and we’ll see it.



You will need:

  • 2 Fat Quarters
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape
  • Wadding
  • Tailors Chalk
  • Sewing Machine
  • Pattern – download pdf here

How to:

  1. Cut out both pieces of fabric using the pattern. I scaled to the size of A2 paper to fit my camera. Might need some adjusting to yours.
  2. Sew arrow shapes to central section on each piece of fabric to close gaps.
  3. Sew both pieces of fabric to each other, right sides together. Do not sew over bottom diagonals.
  4. Cut out wadding so slightly smaller than sewn edge & pull wadding through as you turn fabric right side out. Use gaps to arrange wadding into correct place.
  5. Place both openings right side together and sew to create the pouch. Turn right side out and sew up opening!


Ta da! Its that simple! Why not make one for a friend too!

I didn’t use a sewing machine for this, yes… I know. I cheated. I will start using it soon, promise! But this is what Sew Crafty is famous for. Easy sewing crafts you can do with or without a sewing machine, just using some gorgeous fat quarters! Stay tuned for lots of DIYs like this! I can’t wait to get my teeth, and pins, into some more!
