I got a new camera just a few weeks ago, and been looking for a case since. But searches after, we couldn’t find something that could fit LX5 nicely, due to it’s protruding lens (contrary to normal digicam). So, finally, after Eddie’s suggestion, I made a case for it.
For the first time! hoho. It was quite hard for me to imagine how to do it (again, the lens), so I just went ahead and did some trial. I wanted to start with something really simple but it looked okay but not fun. So then I thought it’d look so cute if it looks like a camera! It’ll be fun to wear too!
I know, I know, not too proud on the workmanship, but my hand stitching did improve as I progressed this project. hahah
Yeay, buttons! They are the best!
It opens on top to allow the straps, finished with velcro closure. Gonna make a strap to attach the case to the camera strap so I won’t lose the case when I’m using the camera.
Overall, I’m very pleased with the result. It looks fun, it’s cute. I love it. Surely, there are a lot of room for improvements. Ah, that’s just the reason to make more of felt crafts!
p.s, check out the original handmade camera case by Hine. super awesome.
