I'm so happy I finished this project the same day I started it! These camera bags that look like purses can sell upwards of $300. I bought the purse at TJ Maxx and decided to make the padding myself.
|starting product $30|
I also got 1 yard of fabric, 1 inch padding that measured 14x14, and stick on velcro-all for $12
|the foam Kitten clearly needed to check out|
|all crafty products from Hobby Lobby|
I measured the foam in the purse then cut the fabric about 1 inch bigger than the foam.
I cut two pieces of fabric the same size and sewed 3 sides together inside-out. Then I turned it right-side-in, stuffed the foam into the fabric, and folded the edges down to sew them together.
|don't look too closely, the seam will clearly go toward the bottom of the purse so I never have to see it again|
I put one piece of foam in the bottom without velcro.
Then I attached velcro to the foam inserts and the inside of the purse.
Overall it was a pretty fun project! The best part is it only cost me $42 instead of $200.
I'm saving room on the outer edges for lenses one day :)
