|Fabric||exterior: Black 4oz PU coated|
|lining: Red cotton flannel|
|Notions||Black sew-in velcro|
Construction Notes: I sewed the front outer and lining together, then sandwiched them between the back outer and lining pieces, and stitched around the perimeter, leaving a gap for turning out, then handstitched the opening afterwards. The bottom corners were slightly boxed. A buttonhole in the flap is positioned for the camera strap to be pushed through.
In future, I would construct this so that the hand-stitched turning gap was in the lining rather than on the outer seam, and would pre-sew the velcro on with a piece of stiff interfacing, rather than stitching through all layers, to avoid visible stitches on the other side – particularly noticeable on the front flap.
Otherwise, I am pleased with this gift with its durable exterior, but soft and playful interior.
