By The Bay SAL Camera Pouch

Seems like my stitching and finishing go so slowly lately.  Part of it is just not being able to stitch for long periods anymore without my eyes getting too tired and part of it is the dreaded frog.  I always try to find away around mistakes without frogging, but sometimes the mistakes are just too egregious to deal with that way.  So I have a small piece in progress that is taking way too long and hopefully I'll show that when it's soon done.

In the meantime, I finally got the motivation to do something with my By The Bay Mystery Sal finish.   The stitching was finished a while ago and the fabrics have just been staring me in the face for too long.  This weekend I made a pouch for my camera using the same method that I used for my Nook Tablet pouch (tutorial).  This one fits its intended device much better.  Of course, I couldn't take a photo with the camera inside, but you'll get the idea.

I love the way you always manage to use your stitching in creative--and useful--ways, Annie... Your camera case is so pretty and I just love the fabric you chose for it.

Hope that egregious frog is long gone by now :)

Wonderful idea Annie. Love it very much. My poor camera sits in the drawer with no cover. I love the colours of the fabric you chose.

Wow, that is really lovely. A great way to use this beautiful design which shows a lot of things that are usually worth a picture with a camera - scenery, flowers, the sea ...

What a lovely pouch! I bet it works wonderfully. Thanks for the link to the tutorial, I've been wanting to turn my first CQ into a netbook sleeve.

I'm dreading the frog too. But with the new glasses and now that I'm on A vitamin maybe it'll show up less frequently.

Love your little pouch, it's so cheerful!
