adventures in sewing: camera case

santa was very kind to leave a new digital camera under the tree for me
(who am i kidding, i opened the box at the post office).
a sharp fuji f70exr that i am already in love with.
anyway, it was quite cold in the chilly colorado winter, so i decided it needed a little case to keep it warm (and scratch free).

i started out with two old shirts to be re-purposed. the stripes for the outside, and the gray tshirt for the inside lining.

i cut squares about 10x6 inches out of both fabrics.

i used a double sided interfacing to fuse the two fabrics together, and give the case a little padding and structure.

i squared everything up, and then sewed in the zipper (mom or dad, will one of you fly to colorado and teach me how to sew a zipper?).

i sewed up the sides, turned it right side out, and proceeded to be very proud of myself.
