DIY Padded Camera Bag – Free Sewing Tutorial + How to Cut Foam Padding for Bags

DIY Padded Camera Bag – Free Sewing Tutorial   How to Cut Foam Padding for Bags

A free sewing tutorial demonstrating how to make a padded camera bag.  Sonja stitched together this very nice soft-sided over the shoulder bag and converted it into a padded camera bag.  Using foam and some adhesive, she was able to give the bag exactly the right amount of padding for her camera.  Sonja used the shoulder bag sewing pattern and tutorial by Tiny Happy as a template to create the bag’s shape and dimensions. Sonja made a few changes to her bag to hold all of her camera equipment.  You might consider sewing a removable shoulder pad for your bag strap if it becomes heavy and you need to carry it for a significant amount of time. See how she sews this awesome camera bag together!
