Doing your best to avoid noticing the terrible state of my nails attach the embellished C and F pieces to the camera.

Add piece G just below the sequins.

Using an overcast stitch attach the two A pieces together.

Ta-Da!

    Don’t you mean “Instamatic”? That’s what the cameras were called when the hippies were here.
