{Padded Camera Pouch} by Michelle Patterns

Join me for Mabel Madison Friday over on their blog for a peek at my latest sew, and then come back here for a little more in depth review!!!!

Did you go??? Don't worry, I'll wait....ok...you back?!

So, now that you have a little background on the Padded Camera Pouch* (affiliate link) let's take a closer look at it, shall we!


The Padded Camera Pouch by Michelle Patterns comes in 4 different sizes [w x h x d]:

  • Small- 4.5" x 3" x 2"
  • Medium- 5" x 3.25" x 2.5"
  • Large- 6" x 3.5" x 3.5"
  • X-Large- 6.75" x 4.25" x 3.5"

This is one thing that I find unique about Michelle's patterns. I really love that most of them come in a range of sizes because not only is it fun to make little coordinating pouches in a variety of sizes, but it really adds to the versatility of the pattern. It takes the guess-work out of trying to make the pattern a little larger to suit your needs.


With that being said, as I was preparing the pattern, I measured my camera and according to the dimensions, it was not going to fit in the x-large pouch...so sad. I did add a little to the height of the pattern, as well as a little to the length so that I could add a bit more depth to it to fit my camera. What did I learn from this??? Apparently my camera would have fit just fine in the x-large pouch...hahaha. It turned out a bit larger that I thought that it would, but I still love it! I now have room for my extra lens and maybe even my speedlight.


Included in the pattern, Michelle gives some great tips for creating a beautiful quality piece that will be sure to last for years to come! Be sure to follow her over on Instagram for some absolutely beautiful inspiration as well as helpful tips. Be sure to peruse through the other patterns that she has to offer as well. All of them are perfect for the beginner sewist!

Thank you for stopping by and keeping up with my sewing adventures!
