Camera Purse

One of my birthday gifts was a sewing machine from my parents.  My mom has passed down many of her talents to me including creativity and cooking but one thing that never seemed to take was sewing.  My mom is an amazing seamstress.  She made all of my Halloween costumes when I was younger and she even sewed the beautiful bridesmaid dresses for my wedding as seen here:

My mom tried to teach me how to sew when I was younger and I even took a sewing class in 9th grade but I just never seemed to pick it up.  But now, I want to try again since I can make many things for the house like pillows and curtains.  

My first project on my new sewing machine was to create a way to carry my camera around that didn't involve one of those ugly camera cases.  So using this tutorial, I made a padded insert for a cute purse that I found at Maurices. 

The insert isn't perfect.  I made a lot of mistakes but I am still really proud of how my first sewing project turned out.  I love how a functional camera case is hidden inside a stylish purse.  It even has removable dividers that can be used for extra lenses and other accessories when I actually own some.  I can't wait to carry it around in Europe in a couple of weeks!
