Then measure 1/2 inch up from the bottom and draw another horizontal line to designate the seam llowance. Draw a vertical line 1/2 inch in from both the left and right sides to also designate seam allowances. From the seam allowance lines on the sides draw vertical lines every 2 inches from the bottom seam allowance line to the 7 1/2-inch mark. This is your interior main bag pattern.
Measure and cut a 41-by-7-1/2-inch piece of poster board. Draw a vertical line 1/2 inch in from each side for the seam bag making machine. Measure 4 inches from the seam allowance, and draw a vertical line. Continue to measure every 4 inches and draw vertical lines so you end up with 10 sections that are 4 inches wide. This is your exterior dauber-holder section pattern.
Use a protractor to draw or bowl to trace a 7-inch circle on the remaining poster board, and cut it out. This is the pattern for the bottom of your bag.
Trace the main bag pattern and the circular pattern onto the solid-colored fabric, and cut them out. Lay out the large section and match it up to the poster board template. Draw the lines onto the fabric dividing the 2-inch sections.Sew around all four edges, using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Leave a 3-inch opening on the short end opposite the elastic. Trim the batting as close to the stitches as possible. This will eliminate bag making machine bulk between the layers. Do not trim the fabric. Turn the stitched layers right side out through the 3-inch opening. You now have a rectangle with an elastic loop on one short end and a small opening on the other short end. Iron the rectangle, but do not iron over the elastic loop. Top-stitch across the short end with the opening, as close to the edge as possible. This will finish the end and close the opening.
Using the poster-board template, cut the decorative fabric for the dauber-holder section. Draw the lines onto the fabric that divide the 4-inch sections. Align the lines on the dauber-holder section piece of fabric to the lines drawn on the main bag fabric. Pin in place, then sew down the vertical lines.Place your camera in the camera case. Fold the flap over to the front of the bag to close. Using the elastic as a guide, mark the placement of the button on the bag's front, using a straight pin. Remove bag making machine. Hand stitch a 1-inch flat button to the front of the camera case. Place the camera back in the camera case. Close the flap and place the elastic loop over the button to secure.
Fold in the seam allowance on each side of the fabrics, and sew the edges together. Fold under the bottom seam allowance section, and sew onto the bottom circular piece of fabric.
Sew a lining for the bag if you wish. To do so simply trace the template for the main bag section and circular bottom eliminating the drawn-on lines. Sew together and sew into the main bag. This is optional.go is important for keeping them safe from scratches and other damage. Sew homemade camera bags to slip into a tote bag, purse or your car's glove compartment using a small amount of fabric. This is a great sewing project for a beginner. Incorporate sewing homemade bag making machine into a teen or tween sleepover activity for an inexpensive take-home party favor.
Create a bag making machine close at the top by folding the edge of the fabric inward 1/2 inch and placing two 30-inch strings inside, one on each side so the ends meet in the middle on either side. Sew the section closed, leaving a small gap on each side where the two ends of the strings meet. Tie the ends of the strings together in a knot.
