Camera Bag 2 - Soft Shell Case

9x12 fabric
As previously seen, I've been working on some camera bags for the photography class at my school. This next post gives you the instructions for the soft camera bags.

24x5 fabric
You Will Need:

  • a piece of fabric (either 9x12 or 24x5, approximately. There is room for adjustments.)
  • quilt batting scraps
  • spray basting (optional)
  • velcro dots
  • Step 2
    Step 1
  • needle and thread




Directions: 9x12
  • Iron out your piece of fabric and lay your quilt batting on top. Spray baste if desired.
  • Fold your fabric in half and quilt across. Your new, quilted piece should measure 9x6.
  • Fold this piece in half again and sew down the open side and bottom with 1/2" seam allowance. Leave the top (pre-folded section) open. This will measure 4.5x6.
  • Tie off the ends and trim. Turn this case right-side out. You should have a case that measures 4x5.5.
  • Add a velcro dot to the opening and use as desired!










Directions: 24x5
  • Iron out your piece of fabric and lay your quilt batting on top. Spray baste if desired.
  • Fold your fabric in half and quilt across. Your new, quilted piece should measure 12x5.
  • Fold over the bottom of the open skinny end by about 1/2" and sew. Your new piece should measure 11.5x5.
  • Fold this piece in half again and sew down the long sides with 1/2" seam allowance. Leave the top (pre-folded section) open. This will measure 5.25x5.
  • Tie off the ends and trim. Turn this case right-side out. You should have a case that measures 5.25x4.
  • Add a velcro dot to the opening and use as desired!




     As you can see, there's plenty of room for adjustments. Play with it and see what works for you and your camera!
