Quickie

I've always wanted to make a bag to protect my digital camera. Armed with some Katia Swing (the same used for the lace edging for the boobtube), I thought it would be a great opportunity to practice my crochet skills.

Mission accomplished! I didn't lose any crochet stiches when turning a new row and even managed to finish 2 flower-looking motifs. Now my camera will be scratch-free!

What a great idea! I like the flowers, I think your crochet skills are really good!

Those are really cute flowers. My camera sits in its original ugly grey pouch. hee hee I can imagine corcheting this cute pouch in pink and the husband hooking it to his belt, where he usually carries the ugly grey pouch!

Great job! Is it your own pattern/design? This should be a big boost to your confidence in crocheting.
BTW, if I crochet something like this in pink for our camera, no way my husband would hold the camera with the pouch anymore! hehehe ...
