I know it hasn't actually been that long since I started designing this pattern, but it feels like forever because I am just SO excited to share this one with you all. I'm happy to announce my latest pattern for a cuddly DSLR-style camera!
My 2 year old always wants to take pictures with my camera, but—for obvious reasons—I don't let him. So I figured, why not make him his own camera to play with? This soft camera is perfect for kids or for the camera aficionado in your life. If you'd like a cuddly camera of your own, you can find the PDF for this pattern on Ravelry or in my Etsy shop.
I'm pretty proud of how this one turned out. It's approximately the same dimensions as my real camera and and includes fun details like a pop-up flash, buttons, screen, and grip. One of my favorite features is the settings dial because it actually turns! You can easily customize the design to make it look exactly the way you want it to.
This pattern uses only basic stitches, but I would recommend it for intermediate level crocheters or above because of techniques like the magic circle and shaping. The pattern includes step-by-step pictures and helpful tips to make it all as simple to follow as possible. All crochet terms are US terminology.
A special thank you to my wonderful pattern testers Julie and Kimberly for their invaluable feedback.
If you end up making a camera, I'd love to see a picture of how it turns out! And, of course, if you have any questions, feel free to contact me. As always, you can reach me in the comment section below or on social media. Happy hooking!
