The Cammy Pack

Introducing… your new favorite accessory of ALL time! That’s right, it’s the fanny pack of 80s/90s fame mashed up with a stylin’ camera strap. Need more clarification? It’s all the function and accessibility of that hands free pack with the style and versatility of a camera strap — aka, it’s something you’ll wear with pride!


Designed by that fabulous fashion forward gal, Rachael Gander of imagine gnats fame, the 3-1/2” wide, fully functional camera strap features both a lens cap pocket and a cell phone
pocket within easy reach, and keeps your valuables safe within one of two zippered pockets. The tutorial includes instructions for sewing a full camera strap with all attachments as well as a variation for a camera strap cover so that all of your needs are covered. Stitch one up and head out for your next sightseeing trip in style and comfort.
