DIY Camera Bag Purse
Skip the not-so-cute camera bag when you make this fun DIY Camera Bag Purse instead!
This year, I was determined to get to work on a homemade-yet-extremely-useful gift for my mother. We both shoot with a Nikon D5000 and had been working with fairly standard Nikon camera bags. At the end of the day, however, those bags pose two problems. First, they’re not particularly glamorous. It felt like lugging around a huge, unattractive… diaper bag? Shouldn’t it feel badass to be shooting in downtown Chicago? Not when you’re carrying around a diaper bag (and if you’ve already got ONE diaper bag for its real purpose, hauling around a second one is definitely not exciting)! Second, the bags were total theft magnets. I can’t even keep track of how many people I know whose cameras have been stolen. Why does that surprise me when we carry around bags with NIKON or CANON written across the top?
From now on, I will carry a camera bag that screams neither “Steal me, I have $1,000 of equipment inside!” nor “Look, a diaper bag!” No, sir. I pledge (ha!) to carry a bag that is attractive. Chic. Fabulous.
Unfortunately, most chic and fashionable camera bags will run you upwards of $200… until now. Do it yourself with this tutorial. I spent $35 on a purse from TJ Maxx and about $10 at Joann’s Fabrics buying foam and fabric.
