So, I finally decided - why not, let's see what I can do! And I'm glad I did - I love how my camera bag turned out!
(note: I used 1 inch foam, but it probably doesn't need it to be quite that thick...however, I just wanted to make sure my camera would be extra safe!!)
I pretended like I was wrapping a present around the foam pieces and used hot glue to keep the fabric in place. I did one skinny long piece for the bottom of the purse, two long side pieces, two short side pieces, and one small middle piece.
And I simply placed the short side pieces of foam on the sides of the piece. They stay in place just fine that way.
And stay tuned - later this week I'll show you some engagement pictures I took with this baby (the camera, not the bag, in case there was any confusion there)!
UPDATE: Here I am in California modeling my new camera bag! Ready to get some good pictures this week! :)
