Make a Retrotastic Camera-Shaped Bag

Berene Campbell of Happy Sew Lucky has a nifty cut-and-sew fabric design that lets you make a camera bag that looks like a Diana camera of the sixties:

This retro design is inspired by the Diana camera sold in the 60’s – now a funky collector’s item. (They sell replicas these days, for those into lomography.) The bag holds a camera up to 5″ W x 3.25″ H x 2″ D. It includes a strap. Of course it could just be a funky purse for your lipstick, loot and lollies too. One fat quarter of Upholstery weight Twill makes one camera bag.

You can purchase the fabric from Spoonflower, and follow a tutorial Campbell wrote over on her blog.
