My 12 yr old student has been working on a camera case based on a pattern that we found on Craftsters Forum. You can view the pattern here. She finished her case today and is excited to give it as a gift to her friend. We used my camera (which is an older and bigger version of the digital cameras they have nowadays) to create our pattern. She decided to use a button closure and we added a long strap so that her friend could wear it across her chest with the camera at her waist. She did a very good job and was very happy with her finished project!
