A Camera Case out of Necessity...

Somehow I managed to lose my camera case on honeymoon, it must have just slipped off somewhere... We are off to the Peak District for a camping trip this weekend and when I remembered about the lost case I thought I'd have a go at making one. I found this one on Ravelry and thought it might be doable in a couple of nights. It uses moss stitch, which was a new one for me, and I love it! There is a great tutorial here which I used. My camera is a bit bigger than most so I chained 40 to start rather than 22 and did a few more rows. I was very pleased with the result :)





All ready to go camping :) I also packed up my Dad's coasters as we may see him, again modelled by our hamper (a wonderful wedding present!)



.... and now I must dash as the camper needs packing!! Have a lovely weekend everyone :)

  2. It is so annoying when you lose something like this isn't it. Your new case is lovely though and I hope that this one will stay safely with you. Hope that you have a great weekend and that your Dad likes his present! xx
