A Camera Cozy for Norah

Norah, our second granddaughter, has a birthday coming up on Saturday.  I had a Babcia-made* gift in mind for her, but I hadn’t begun it yet when my daughter texted me with a request.  It seems that Norah wanted a purple camera for her birthday, but purple camera’s are a little hard to find, so my daughter thought that they’d get her a black camera, and if I could make a purple camera case to go with it, then maybe Norah would be perfectly happy.

I found a simple tutorial for a camera cozy, raided my fabric stash for purple and purple and flowers, had just enough of just the right kind of interfacing on hand, and made a cute little purple camera case for Norah.  It isn’t perfect (please don’t inspect the binding), and if you’re planning on making one, be forewarned that stitching through 4 layers of fabric plus 4 layers of interfacing plus the binding is definitely not as easy as the tutorial made it look (I probably missed something somewhere that showed an easier way to do it).    But it’s done and in the hands of the Postal Service for speedy delivery.  I hope Norah loves it.
