Weekend Project: DIY Sock Camera Case

Here's my dilemma: I have a sexy new camera, but no case to protect it from all of the loose garbage that is floating around in my purse.
The ghetto-solution to this was that I carried my camera around in a sock.
This posed two problems:
1. Carrying your camera around in a sock is not classy nor is it in any form sexy.
2. It's a sock.

So, I had an old, thick yellow soccer sock lying around, and decided to make my own case!
(It's partner had been turned into a PMS gift sophomore year for Izzy. Sock + Rice = DIY Heating Pad. Genius.)

Here are some pictures of my sewing adventure!

Tada! Awesome, inexpensive DIY re-purposing!
Next weekend project? VALENTINES.

"He begins his process by cutting figures and images out of illustrated pages of old books and vintage fiction novels. Allen then cleverly rearranges and juxtaposes the forms to create three-dimensional scenes. Next, he carefully lights his subjects and photographs the scenes. When separated from their original stories, the figures take on fresh roles in entirely new situations. Yet they retain their intended purpose of storytelling." - Golberz.com
