My DIY Waterproof Camera Case
You Will Need
I got a knew camera for christmas and it's digital which is pretty new for me because I've always prefered and still do prefer working with 35mm. But this is something I can carry in my purse and always have on hand if I want to take a picture. It's a Nikon Coolpix L22 and Nikon is my prefered brand of camera. They are kind of the cream of the crop and are real photographer's cameras. I wanted to have a way to carry my camera, but more importantly protect it.
I used this really soft flannel for the inside lining to protect my camera from scratches.
I also knew that keeping my camera from getting wet was really important so I used an old umbrella top to make an interfacing and then for the outside.
I used some scrap leopard print fabric and felt to make it pretty.
I put a buttonhole on the top of the case so I can slip my strap through it and easily carry it around on my wrist and it's shut using some velcro.
