So now I am officially way behind on sharing Elfie's adventures. I just haven't felt like sitting at the computer, editing pictures, creating storyboards, and composing posts the past few days. It takes a lot (a WHOLE lot) of time. And I really wanted to take a few days to do something non Christmas related.
So I went shopping at T.J. Maxx and got myself a new purse, and then to JoAnns for some pretty fabric, foam and velcro. I followed this tutorial and made myself a padded camera bag insert!
This is a quick Instagram picture I took. It is seriously awesome. I added a few extras not included in the tutorial, like pockets on the outside to hold some extra stuf, like memory cards, my wireless remote, and cleaning wipes.
I love it!! And I plan on keeping an eye out for the perfect yellow or turquoise bag as well. It has to be the right size, it has to have a flat bottom, and it has to have a messenger strap included. The one in the picture (for $24.99 from T.J. Maxx) does, and it's not the color I was planning on buying, but I still really like it, and it can be dressed up or down. The padded insert will also fit in a couple other bags I own, and I am SO SO SO happy I don't have to use my ugly black backpack every time I want to bring my camera with me!!!
