Quilted camera case – free pattern

All posts may contain affiliate links.

Free sewing pattern. Great little bag to use as a camera case, but I'm making one with a piece of elastic inside separated into sections to hold nail polish when I travel - perfect!

Ooh, we loved this little bag the minute we found it. Ideal for a camera, but useful for lots more besides.  It’s a very simple (free) pattern, so once you see how the pieces go together you could create this bag in any size you like.  Talk about simple – just one piece for the body and then another piece for the side panels – that’s it!  Add some pretty contrasting binding and you are done.

This would make a cute travel bag for lots of items – how about sewing in a piece of elastic, sewn into sections for holding your nail polish?  Or essential oils?  Anything!
