this breadbag, the minik minik garland and these little pants, and this pillow all made from parts of Senol's suits and shirts.This was very, very easy! It took me less than half an hour. And I am definitely not a sewer. Continuing my obsession with suit and shirt fabrics, I made these from a part of Senol's old suit pants... there are some benefits from having a husband that works for the man. Remember
So, this is how I made it - which was to make it up as I went along so hopefully this makes sense!:
1. I found an old pair of Senols suit pants - the style with the tab that goes over to the button (as this will form the closure on the camera pouch). To get the right size for my camera I first put the camera directly below the button on the pants and wrapped the material up the sides. I added an extra couple of centimetres on each side for 'room to move' and I also added an extra couple of centimetres on each side for seams...and just in case! This forms 'Piece 1' - the front of the pouch.
2. 'Piece 2' of the pouch (the back) needs to be with the tab from the pants at the top as indicated in the photo. I made this piece roughly the size of the back of my camera (with some room to move) plus 2cm on the sides and bottom to allow for the seams.
5. Then I moved the tube of material around so that the button and the tab were lined up, then pinned and sewed the bottom of the pouch like that.
6. Then it just needed to be turned out the right way and it was finished!
I love how the loops from the pants are along the back of the pouch - I just like the way it looks but you could also attach something there - like a loop for your neck, or even a cute little decoration or keys.
Have no idea what I'm talking about??? Please don't hesitate to ask questions in the comments.
