Lens Pouch

March 7, 2012 Sarah Coggins

Since getting a new lens at Christmas, I’ve been looking for ways to take it along from time to time. My camera only fits in my small bag with the kit lens (new one is too long) and I don’t always want to carry my large camera bag as I typically have a diaper bag in tow as well. I found the idea for the Strappy Camera Lens Pouch on Pinterest. The tutorial was written by another mom who also wanted to take along the extra lens while toting the diaper bag.

This was my first time sewing a project with a zipper. I was proud I at least knew to change the foot on my machine! Beyond that, it took a minute of reading the manual. I was just about to search online for how-to videos when I figured it out.

The main fabric was in my stash leftover from creating my camera strap cover. On the inside I used a coordinating fat quarter I bought while shopping for the zipper.

Supplies: floral print fabric – Central Park by Kate Spain; liner fabric – JoAnn Fabrics; Pellon fusible fleece; Coats & Clark thread and zipper.
