Got into sewing a year or so ago. First a down sleeping bag for sub-freezing campouts. Then a lightweight tent for backpacking. Then on to a couple of camera backpacks.

Holy smokes, I'd love to see pics of those!

Here's a pic of the tent I made.

Here's a post about the first camera backpack I made.

I just finished a second backpack, which fits the camera more tightly while having a wrap-around door so the camera grip is easy to grab. It also has a better suspension system that includes a detachable waist belt to carry the load on longer hikes, but still allows for fairly easy detachment of the bag for accessing the camera slinger-style.

I'm very impressed, great job!
