How To Sew Your Own DIY 1960's Diana Camera Bag

File this under, "too darn cute DIY". Happy Sew Lucky shares her cut-and-sew fabric plans for a camera bag shaped like the iconic 1960's film shooter, the Diana (revitalized by Lomography as the Diana F+)...

Berene Campbell of Happy Sew Lucky notes the project "is not a difficult pattern to sew, however accuracy is important." Looks a little out of my league, but then again, my sewing career was short-lived. In fact, it's been several years since I've touched a sewing machine; I had a short stint in the children's home wares world and had to occasionally sew some of the soft good designs I was prototyping, but this looks a bit more advanced than my usual plain ole pillows projects. Berene's project may just be inspiring enough to warrant revisiting the ole pins and needles.

With detailed step-by-step instructions and clearly marked photos accompanying each, complete with "watch out" notes throughout, experienced crafters should have no problem following suit. If you've got a decent sewing machine and the modest list of supplies, there's nothing to stop you from making this camera or setting out to recreate other vintage cameras in similar fashion.

Could I sneak in some requests?
