I have always liked the retro look when it comes to the old style leather camera bags ( I am pretty retro myself). I started working with leather a couple of years ago and after looking at the prices for some of the leather camera bags I thought I would try to make one for myself. It is by far the largest leather project I have ever attempted, but I am pretty pleased with how it turned out. It is all hand sewn, and I used 5-6 oz leather.
I thought I would share some photos of my project. The insides are two Tenba messenger bag inserts. It is a pretty big bag, and I only use it for special occasions. I have included a shot with my Canon 7D for size comparison. The front pocket is holding a Stroboframe flash bracket.
