A PDF sewing pattern for a camera toy, with both neck strap and wrist strap options. A small vinyl pocket on the back allows you to slip in pictures for a ‘view-finder’ to use in pretend play. Perfect as:
- a softie for a baby or infant
- a prop for dress-up & imaginative play for an older child
This Little Photographer camera pattern is designed for an intermediate, with real pictures showing you how to sew your camera. You are expected to know how to sew 3-D corners and applique, and be comfortable sewing thin bias tape and small curves. The pattern includes the full tutorial and digitized pattern pieces.
5.5” tall X 8” wide
This is a PDF, downloadable sewing pattern and not a finished product! Read & see more in my blog post introducing the pattern. I always pin blog posts & customer photos to my pattern board here, too.
