Ok, so I finished assembling my first attempt at a camera bag. It came out kinda close to what I had intended, but there are many things to fix. The main thing is that I need more foam in the sides for the bag to hold shape. It’s pretty flimsy. It’s probably a combination of the fabric I used and not enough foam. I guess I really can’t have too much foam for a camera right?
I learned a trick in assembling the bottom. Thanks Scott. I need to adjust the measurements for the top flap, possibly even get rid of it. However aesthetically, once the measurements are fixed, I think it will look good. Also, it’s an extra piece of insurance in keeping the camera from popping out of the bag.
On the next one I’m going to add a microfiber interior that will allow me to attach a padded divider. I think that will help to give it some more shape, as well as keep the camera nice and snug in there.
Thanks for following along and apologies for the crappy iPhone pics. I was just taking them as I went along. Now quit reading this and go make something with your hands!
