A few months a go I showed you a preview of the camera carrier insert I sewed. I didn’t hold on the tutorial by accident, I actually wanted to give my honest review (and changes I would make to improve) along with a tutorial. I’ve been using the carrier for months now and it works great with the exception of some details I will describe so you can improve your own version (if you decide to make one for yourself)
I have to say that I completely love my camera carrier, and changing purses is super easy! My carrier fits in all my purses, in some more tight than others, so when I need to carry more than just my camera I simply choose a bigger handbag, works beautifully!
The problems I’ve had so far with my carrier are the following:
- The outside felt is getting a little worn, from getting contact with a lot of different liners from my bags (If I were to make it again, I would use a cotton or outdoor canvas on top of the outside felt piece)
- The handles, even tho they are very pretty, they are not very resistant, so if were to make it again I would reinforce the traps and stay with an old fashion strap instead of trying the “prettier” version I did for mine. but if you like them I will explain how to reinforce them too =]
So now to the materials and instructions, because you should make one for you too!
