Camera Bag Flap


I received my new camera/diaper bag yesterday. I was too cheap to buy a flap for it, thinking "I can make that no problem!" Well, I made it, but began to wonder if saving $10 was worth the hassle. I did add some upgrades to my flap: an appliqued initial to the front and a hidden zipper on the back side (look for it in the pic below). I already know some things I'd do differently if I make another one - first, make it wider and longer - when the bag is stuffed, it's a tight fit, so a little slack would be nice; second, add a zipper pouch or simple pocket to the outside of the flap, so there's a pocket that's accessible without opening the flap. Now it's on to making various matching accessories - camera strap, zipper pouches, lens bags, etc. The fun continues!
