Here is a great tutorial on how to make a cute little quilted Cozy Camera Case for your point and shoot camera.
This one fits a camera that is 4.3″ by 3.0″ by 1.8″, so will fit any camera up to that size, or smaller. You can also adjust the size of the pieces very easily to make a case for a larger or smaller camera.
Please also note that the main panel piece was left a little longer, and then before attaching the binding the front flap was trimmed to the right size. The shortened front flap would have looked better if it was a little longer, but it was important to ensure that while pushing the snap closed that you didn’t push against the lens all the time.
You might just want to look at where any important functions are on your camera before deciding on the side of the flap and where any snap might fall. Or switch out the snap to use velcro instead, and then you won’t need to press on the camera to close it. As always, patterns and designs are just a template for you to work from, so feel free to adjust it to suit you better if needed.
