My name is Andrea and I am the designer and maker here at Watermelon Wishes as well as the Chief Creative Genius over at

Watermelon Wishes is the label under which I market my original line of camera bags, camera strap covers and planner covers and Sewspire is my instructional platform where you'll find oodles of free sewing patterns and loads of creative inspiration.

Every item here at Watermelon Wishes is custom made to order and can be personalized with your monogram. My camera strap covers make a beautiful and unique gift that is sure to be treasured for many years to come.

My camera bags are designed for those who like to travel in style and can be machine washed as needed. I offer 4 sizes to suit your needs perfectly. The compact camera bag is designed to hold equipment which measures 6" or less (such as the digital body with 55mm lens attached), the medium will hold equipment combos that measure 8" or less (such as the digital body with 300mm lens attached), the large size is the perfect replacement for the standard black bag that is issued with the kits and will hold the digital body with 55mm lens attached and the 300mm lens detached and my Ultimate Camera Bag is all that and more as it will hold two digital bodies, two lenses or one digital body and 3 lenses.

My planner covers can be sized to fit your favorite planner and the pockets can be customized to hold your necessities perfectly---just let me know what you need to carry and I will make it happen. To ensure a good fit, you'll want to provide me with the measurements of your planner when it is open and laying flat on the table.
