new camera accessories

My photography class has started and during the first lesson, the teacher picked up my camera at one point to adjust one of my settings and I thought: man, my camera strap looks grubby.

I had made a cover to my strap a few years ago and it was time for an update. So last week, I used the fabric that was left over from a baby quilt I recently made to make a new strap cover and a new top flap for my camera bag.

I also covered some buttons with fabric to add as decorative pieces to both the bag and the strap. And I LOVE the new look!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.

    I LOVE the camera strap cover! I would certainly buy one of those for my camera. You should start a little business on etsy with all of the creative things you make! :) It’s always fun to read your blog. Your creativity is amazing!

    Robyn! I love this! The covered buttons totally ‘make’ it. I love covered buttons in projects! And yes, I totally remember you (outhouses, lol)! You know, a loooong time ago I popped over here via Mandi’s blog and was all intrigued, but somehow didn’t continue to follow (me of the million-tabs-open-at-all-times-till-Firefox-crashes).

    So I popped in again and my first thought was WOW! Her pictures are waaay better than last time! Not that I thought they were especially bad the first time or something, but I notice this b/c my own photos are a source of frustration for me. I’m hoping I can get a new camera this summer or so. I’m ready to go DSLR. You encourage me that it can be learned.

    I also love how taking pictures is quite clearly one of your mediums for self-expression and processing life. It’s a way you communicate and it’s interesting.
