DIY Camera Purse

I made this over 2 months ago but was waiting to post it until I could also make the strap cover! But that might not happen any time soon, so here it is!

I wanted a cute camera bag that could also double as a purse, so I wouldn't have to lug around both. I made this during my recovery from surgery, so I wasn't as detailed oriented as I usually would be, but I'm very happy with the way it turned out!

I got this purse from Target for $20.

The purse has two dividers inside, so it has 3 large sections. I chose pretty thick foam (I think 1/2") which makes it a little more bulky, but I'm glad I did so I know my camera is safe!

I measured the 4 "walls" and the bottom of the middle section and cut the foam to size. Then, I wrapped the foam in fabric and sealed it with hot glue. I placed the foam one by one and hot glued them to the dividers inside the purse.

Then, I did the same thing to make dividers. I chose to only glue these in at the bottom, so they are a little more flexible if I need them to be, but you don't have to do that.

I love how it turned out! It's so easy to carry and can hold so much stuff!

I plan on making a camera strap cover with the same fabric, but I'm still upset with my sewing machine from the whole curtain fiasco. So once I get over that, I'll show you my camera strap!
