Tutorial: DIY padded camera bag insert

Ashley from Lil Blue Boo shows how you can make a designer camera bag at a fraction of the cost of buying one already made.  The secret is a padded and velcro-ed organizer that can turn a roomy handbag into a stylish camera tote.  The padding protects the camera and keeps it snug and the velcro allows you to customize the size of the compartments for your camera body and lenses.  This is so awesome!!  Get the tute.

    So happy to have found this Tut! Thank you!! I have a backpack that I use as purse, camera bag, and laptop case. This will make the camera fit so much nicer!!

    My modifications will be: I will be getting 1/8″ acrylic (from hardware store) in place of the cardboard. I am also going to purchase a can of the spray that is utterly water repellent and paint the whole thing, so it is solidly water-tight, :).

    I will also be adding a flap over the top, so things will stay scratch-free in my bag.
