Sometimes when I travel I like to carry my camera around my neck and an extra lens in my purse/backpack instead of carrying my large camera bag around with me. The only problem with this is that sometimes the lenses can get jostled around a bit and need to be protected. I’ve had these padded camera lens cases on my “to make” list for a while now and finally sat down and made some for my upcoming London trip.
I designed them in 3 sizes small, medium and large. The large case I made for my zoom lens and the the small one fits my 35 mm lens quite well. The medium one was designed for my 18-200 mm lens but it also fits snugly in the small case. You can pick and choose which size you’d like to make based on which lenses you have.
