Sewing Project 1: Camera Pouch

While it rained and poured and thundered outside, I stayed in and decided to work on a mini project. Some of you may know that I got a Canon S95 for my birthday, but it didn't come with any kind of casing or pouch. Instead of going out and buying a pouch (which may cost anywhere between 40AUD to 100AUD for good ones), I made my own!

Using this tutorial, I handstitched the whole thing because I don't own a sewing machine. The pouch turned out quite pretty but the stitches are terribly lopsided and messy!

I used the cloth from an unwanted dress and some ribbon lying around. This is only temporary of course, because it hasn't got enough padding and I'm just not satisfied with the stitches! But until I get around to sewing another one, this will have to do for the time being. :)


  1. nia! what ribbon lying around! i used it to tie your birthday present one lor!

  2. WOOHOO!
    Kudos on hand-stitched goods with love!
    And bonus for actually having the heart to cut up a dress, albeit unwanted!


  3. Babi Neo! Ya la after I took it out and put in on the table it is ribbon lying around already what! Don't worry it was put to good use! :D

    Ming: :D :D YES! And the dress... well I don't miss it that much but at least I didn't let it go entirely to waste! :D
