Camera Bag Purse

I loved THIS camera bag
from Epiphanie.
Oh and THIS one too.

I wish they had the turquoise one 
with a hot pink interior like the black one.

And maybe for my birthday
they'll be back in stock and someone
nice will gift me one of these beauties.

But for now, I fashioned my own.
I bought a purse that struck my fancy 
at Marshalls
Just $24.99
I LOVE the color.
and it has the perfect number of pockets.

plus easier on the wallet 
than one of the fancier Epiphanie bags.

Then I purchased some foam & pretty fabric.

Not that I couldn't have just picked a fabric
from my growing collection here at home.

Sewed the fabric around the foam
and ta dah!  Camera bag purse. for less than 40 bucks.
(still need to add a divider piece so I can carry an extra lens)

I decided not to stitch it to the lining,
so that I could remove the pieces and use it just as a purse
if I ever wanted.
