I got a sweet lil' SLR for my birthday this week. I'm in LOVE with it. I spent a good part of the week looking at camera bags. You know, the type that look like a purse and not an actual camera bag. I fell in love with several on the Epiphanie Bags website. I mean, who doesn't love those? But the price was way out of my range. So I started looking into tutorials for a DIY version, and found this. Except I didn't feel like dealing with the sewing machine. Or velcro. So I busted out my trusty hot glue gun, and got to work.
I used 1" foam, and wrapped the pieces in fabric like I was wrapping a present, securing it with the hot glue. The only problem is that the 1" foam is a little too bulky, and the camera + extra lens takes up most of the bag. So I either need to re-do it using 1/2" foam or get a bigger bag. I'm voting for the bigger bag =) But in all, I was pretty pleased with myself!
