Boxy Bags

Today I have some more bags from earlier this year. This summer I made several boxy bags to give away, and the last one was finally gifted in mid-November, so I thought I'd go ahead and share them.  I'd made one of these before  and it was the perfect size for an on-the-go crochet project.  I love the shape, and the tutorial I follow results in no unfinished interior edges (a must for me).  Unfortunately, I didn't use enough interfacing this time, so they're a little soft, but useful all the same!

Here they are with my old one.

Also last summer Mike got me a new camera right before our trip to Alaska.  I decided to make a camera bag for it using the train case pattern from Sew Sweetness.  I love her patterns for slightly more complicated bags, and this one was fun.  It's the smallest size in the pattern, and was a bit fiddly, but came out nice.  I made a shoulder strap to carry it and left off the top handle, but otherwise followed the pattern.

That little zip pocket in the top is the perfect size for a spare battery and SD card.  The camera was a perfect fit inside, so I was pleased about that, but unfortunately Mike has gotten me some sort of protective lens cover filter thing so now I don't think it will fit anymore!  Fun bag all the same though, and sometime I'll make the larger sized ones from the pattern.
