The main fabric was a Christmas present from my sister, bought in Love Handmade in Lincoln. I just managed to squeeze the pieces into a metre of fabric. The other fabrics were from Fabricland. In place of foam interfacing I used scrim backed foam from eBay. Oh and I added a layer of PUL to make the bag waterproof, because, why not?
This bag took a long time to make, mostly because you have to cut about a million pieces out, by the time you've cut fabric, lining, foam, fleece, interfacing... but it was definitely worth it. I'm so pleased by the result. It came out a little bigger than I expected, which means I can use it for all my bits and pieces, not just the camera... which actually looks a bit lost in the bottom of there!
The construction was more straightforward than I thought it would be. The only problem was sewing through all the layers- whichever size and type of needle I tried, my machine kept skipping stitches. I'm not sure if it didn't like the foam? It was a pain, but I managed to make it work in the end.
See the snapped-in-half golf club? That was the work of long-suffering husband. I would say he threw it down in a fit or temper,which makes the game sound super exciting, but the truth is... he stepped on it and it just broke.
