If you've got large enough scraps, don't cut two pieces for this camera case. Use only one long piece of fabric to create both front and back, 13 - 1/2 by 4 inches wide. Your fusable felt would then need to be 13 inches by 3.5 inches. Fold the bottom of your long strip of fabric up about 5 - 1/4 inches to form the pouch. You then only need stitch the two side seams. Follow all other directions as given above.
