A few years ago, I made this...
It works great as a small camera bag, throw in a coin purse, keys, and you are hands free.
I found a vintage binocular case at Salvation Army, one of those with the plastic handles but are nice and soft inside. They are so easy to make cute if you can find them. Paste tickets or glue on treasures from a special trip.
(lace sewn on canvas for a study handle)
Perfect for a trip!
