Whenever I carry my camera around, I usually just end up wrapping it up in a scarf and sticking it in my bag (I know, alarming..), but when I got a new lense for Christmas, I decided I probably needed to invest in a suitable camera bag, especially for our trip coming up. I wanted something small that would protect my camera, but still fit into my purse. I liked the idea of a camera bag insert, especially after seeing this one on Ona's website. Then, after seeing this little cutie on Pinterest, I got inspired to make my own.
Unfortunately, I don't have much of a how-to to share for this project! I bought 1 inch thick foam and water-proof fabric at the craft store (you can find foam in the back by the pillow inserts) and used an old belt for the strap. After a long day at work, I came home, poured myself a glass of wine and turned on Lord Huron. In need of some serious craft therapy, I attempted to hand sew this guy.
Fits perfectly in my carry-on!
Next up: a new camera strap that my husband will feel comfortable wearing as well. Which probably means my lace idea is out...
