Camille Camera Bag

(1 customer review)


This vintage-inspired camera bag sewing pattern includes padded compartments for two lenses and a tablet, an exterior slip pocket, an adjustable cross-body strap, and a fully-enclosing wrap around flap with a reinforced top-carrying handle.

The materials list includes two 6″ wood craft sticks. These keep the flap from sagging under weight when using the top handle. You can find them at any craft store.

    I made this for a professional photographer as a gift, and asked her to let me know if she thought it could be improved or modified to better fit her needs, as I’m not a photographer so I wouldn’t know. This was what she had to say when she received it 🙂

    “I just wanted to let you know I received the camera bag and strap yesterday and it’s awesome! I couldn’t wait to use it so I already have my gear in there. I’m looking for ways you could make improvements but it’s pretty awesome! Most of the bags I have are too big or too small and this one is perfect to grab and go. It has just enough room for my camera with a lens on, an extra lens and then either a 3rd lens or flash. Then some extras in the side pocket and my phone and wallet on the outside pocket. I LOVE it! Thank you so much! I’ve been eyeing high end camera bags for a long time but could never justify spending that much and this one is even better :)”

    Thanks Alicia for yet another FABULOUS pattern!!!!
