This snappy little camera bag is from Belle & Boo’s book of Craft which Belle & Boo kindly sent us to review, along with S is for Sewing (Laura made the pull along duck toy last week which you can read about here).
So, no tutorial I’m afraid for this one – you’ll just have to get the book! The bag was easy to make and inexpensive because it’s made from felt. I’m not great at following instructions (in fact I am BAD and I get bored easily and would much rather wing it) but this was straightforward and a lot simpler to make than it looks, thanks to the wonders of bond-a-web. Amelie loves snapping away with it. I was kind of hoping she wouldn’t like it because secretly I wanted to keep it for myself. Damn.
I’ve since been buying the book for all my crafty mum friends for Christmas because I genuinely really love it. The projects are different to those you usually find in kids craft books – they are well thought out and beautifully made. There are some lovely, intricate and unusual projects in there and it was really hard to pick just one to make for this review. I’m DEFINITELY making a boo at some point, he seems a bit harder so I just need to work out when and prepare myself for the inevitable fact that mine will never look as good as this one!
