Apparently, I’m A Little Blue…Part Deux…

I made myself a box.  It’s sort of like a camera case.  I got the pattern from youcanmakethis.com.  First let me say I LOVE how it turned out.  Having said that, it was very labor intensive. The instructions were fantastic!  There were just a LOT of steps.  As they say, though, nothing worthwhile is ever easy! I don’t recommend this for a raw beginner, but it’s easily finished by someone with moderate sewing skills.

I added a felt square for needles for when I use it as a craft case and there are removable dividers that Velcro in.  I used foam core board for the sides and bottom so it is nice and sturdy.  I am sure this is destined to become our camera case! I also made a pincushion with the extra material!
