sewing project - a camera bag

To Troy16 with love

The Camera Bag

Started on this one more than a month ago....juggle in between house chores. This project was based on a Lowepro Stealth camera bag that troy16 had.
Measures about 12"x 8"x 9"(L x W x H)

the top zipper

the back

the sides (pocket & D-ring for the handle)

the front (there's another zipper underneath the cover with troy16 lable)

zipper underneath the cover, inside of bag(center) and the side D-ring

The Bag

With some guidance from the guru, all i did was measure the original bag, and start cutting the material.
It was along the way into making it that i realized, i should have done this, should have done that.

Note: i wanted The Bag to be blue, so i thought, blue should be the body. I added color by putting red for the pockets and the top cover(so as not to make it look monotonous) , BUT when it was done, see what happens?? the red seems to dominate. How wrong i was there!

After all the sweat (luckily no tears!), I managed to complete & would say I'm proud of it.

I wish i can share the tutorials with enthusiasts out there, but unfortunately, I was also learning (& also making mistakes) while doing it, that I don't even think of taking photos during the process. However, we can share/exchange knowledge/information thru emails.


  1. Hello Makcikkantin, you sure one lover of cameras. And that bag is beautiful. Very nice.

    I keep my 2 old cameras in an old cooler bag, this inview of our weather.

    My Nikon SLR F601 with accessory flash and 35mm-135mm lens is 12 years old. Tripod too.
    For backup saya ada a very old Yashica Electro 35 with 50mm is 35 years old.
    Yes, you read that right, ha ha. 35 years old!
    Still takes very good pics.

    My hobby is portrait photography, I make women look beautiful and ahemmmm, sexy with my 2 jurassic film cameras.

    Makcik, saya suka your sense of humour.
    You buat saya ketawa at my pondok with your comment, ha ha.
    Love women like you.
