I recently purchased my first DSLR camera. And I have to say, I absolutely love it! So of course I want to take it on a trip to Paris coming up. But then I was faced with a problem... how can I carry it around? I didn't want to bring the big clunky bag that it came with (not only was the bag clunky, but also has Nikon printed on it... advertising my camera bag to possible pickpockets).
So I decided to make my own camera bag, by creating a removable insert for my purse. Using materials that I already had around the house, I developed this cute, customizable, and easy to make travel bag, perfect for fitting my camera, while still being large enough to carry all my other travelling needs. It's the perfect carry-on!
For this project you will need:
- a large purse (I found one on sale at Sears, but any big purse will work)
- 1.5 cm wide foam
- 1 yard of fabric (I used blue fleece that I had lying around)
- black marker
- Sewing supplies (needle, yarn, pins, scissors)
