Friday Favorite: New Patterns

January 4th, 2019

Last Fall, I purchased Noodlehead’s new pattern for the Fika Tote. My plan is to make one for a camera bag, since it’s a large bag lined with foam and has large pockets inside. I didn’t want to make my camera bag straight away, because I wasn’t sure exactly how I wanted to change the interior of the bag to fit lenses & cameras. I made this version per the pattern, it turned out quite nicely. I don’t really need it though, so I’ll be adding it to Seeds & Sundries to sell it. Hopefully it will be useful for someone else.

Now I need to get on making myself one just for my camera equipment. I’m thinking of making foam lined inserts that can easily be lifted out of the bag instead of pockets sewn into the bag. I’ve been sewing up a storm now that my sewing room is all moved and set up. Stay tuned for more of my makes.

What creative outlets have you been pursuing lately?
