Citrusy Goodness!

I have a friend who's a photographer. She's been looking for a camera bag, but she didn't want to spend $100 or more on a lame black bag. I told her I could make a cute one. She took me up on that. She traded me a photography session for this bag. She chose the Alexander Henry citrus fabric, showed me some bags that she liked(which I used as inspiration), and I took it from there. I looked online for a tutorial for a padded camera bag for a DSLR and found nothing, so I drafted the pattern myself. It took me forever to figure out what to use as padding.
