Here's a small list of supplies you'll need if you want to make one of your own for your camera or anything really.
2-8x7 1/2'' of outer fabric
2- 8-7 1/2 of lining fabric, (I used muslin because it's soft)
1-8'' or longer zipper
Some form of embellishment for the outside of the pouch either store bought or made by you, or nothing at all if you prefer.
Though you can't see it in the picture but I ironed on some fusible interfacing to the outer pieces of fabric. The more padding for this camera pouch the better, especially if you're hard on your equipment like my mom is. :)
Aside from ironing all your fabric nice and flat, turn down about 1/4'' along the top of the outer fabric pieces. This will be the part you sew to the zipper.
I was gifted a dress from a buddy, and honestly, I rarely wear dresses. Skirts yes, jeans yes, cargo pants yes, but a dress....rarely. I did however, like the buttoned ruffles up the front. I cut this from the original fabric to use for the front of this pouch.
Since my embellishment was sewn shut at the bottom and could unbutton I was able to sew a line down the outside row of buttons to attach this to the middle front of one of the outside pieces of fabric. Button it back up and you're ready to move on to the next step.
Lay your zipper face up. Take one piece of lining fabric and line it up with the bottom of your zipper. You can see the white lining fabric peeking out below the blue zipper.
If you make this pouch for your purse, or makeup or odds and ends you can take out the interfacing and it wont be so bulky.
Once you finished sewing, open the zipper and fold the lining piece under the zipper, this is what your pouch should look like so far.
Now you're going to do the same thing with the other side of the zipper, except keep the zipper open while pinning and sewing. Here's a pic of how it will look as you're lining it up and pinning it.
Close your zipper about half way and open your pouch so that the right sides of the outer fabric at lined up and the right sides of your lining fabric on are lined up. The zipper will be in the middle. I left the long edges of my embellishment so it would be easier to tell which side has the outer fabric.
