My Camera

Very exciting news: I got an awesome and adorable new camera for my birthday! It is a fujifilm and it is black, just like the camera I imagined in my head when I decided I wanted a new camera. It's really tiny and thin, which is cute but also scary because I am notorious for breaking things. A camera case is the obvious answer, so I turned to etsy because I knew they would have a mess of cute ones, not like the boring ones you buy at radio shack or whatever. Here's my cream of the crop.This is the Angry Face Recycled Plastic Camera Pouch from curiousdoodles. Made with fused plastic; it combines two things I can scarcely resist: recycling and anthropomorphism.

Obscura13 makes these custom camera cases; I really like the example shown above, the embroidery and colors are so nice, but she has a bunch of vinyl color choices, and some really cool choices for liner fabric. I like the owls and outerspace.

Speaking of owls and anthropomorphism, here is an adorable camera cozy from Itybitybags. It's called Mia the Tweet and it certainly looks cozy.

There's a lot I like about this case from SallyHope; I like that it is made from a Jodeci t-shirt, I like the black and purple color combo, I like that it has a kind of funereal look to it, I like that it is machine washable! And of course I love the button.

chetanddot is so full of cute pouches it was hard to choose just one, but I think I like this Home Among the Trees Cozy the best because it is felt and the colors are so bright and pretty.

I was wowed by the pouches in suezybees' shop; she employs a wide variety of techniques in each of her pieces including applique, beading, embroidery and screenprinting. This is another shop where it was hard to choose a favorite, but I eventually settled upon this sailboat pouch.
I couldn't resist this case from pictureperfectpurses, which looks to be made from a vintage pacman bedsheet!
Here is another vintage inspired piece; this sturdy wallet with the bold stripes from valhallabrooklyn has a definite 70s or 80s feel. And I like it. I also like that it looks virtually indestructable.

I've been crushing on Vizzeli's shop for a while now because of their gorgeous messenger bags. I love that their camera case looks almost like a conventional camera case but it is made from salmon pink organic cotton canvas.

I'll end the list with this sweet Cozy Creature Cover by amyandjoshandmade. It is made of fleece and comes in a variety of colors and is ridiculously affordable. What's not to love?
Now I just have to choose which would be overkill to get them all, right?
