Question, how do you photograph your new camera, in its handmade case...

...when you want to use said camera, to take the photograph?. Easy, you need a stunt camera!

Voila!, plus new crafty reading material...

'This is for You', by Rob Ryan, was my anniversary present from Mr LK. We have been married for ten years but together for twenty on christmas eve.

Camera case has been made from the wool jumper I felted a few weeks back, it is lovely and thick. Blanket stitched edge, with a felt flower and button to hide the press stud fastening.

I have some leftover felted wool. I think I see a camera case in my future.

Happy Anniversary! Thank you for the fantastic link - I'd never seen Rob Ryan's blog before, but have now put it in my bloglines, as it looks fantastic (and what a lovely husband to buy you the book!) x

I love the new camera case - I made one for my daughter with lovely flowery fabric and wadding inside but I think making one out of a felted wool is brilliant - and much easier! Is the Rob Ryan book good? I think I may need to get myself a copy..... Lucy x

Such a nice camera case - I'm thinking that could hold an iPod too...

We just got married at the beginning of December on our tenth anniversary - glad to know we're not the only ones to do it :) Here's to the next 10!

Great idea! I've got plenty of felted wool from other projects, and I could use a new camera case. Thanks for the tip!
