So I have this friend who knows how to sew.
She’s a very crafty one, this friend. And her daughter has inherited (and been taught!) this crafty gene. My sister got all the crafty genes in our family. I am artistic by way of photography but crafty is not a word I could use to describe myself. I can accomplish crafts but it is not in my nature to create.
Leah messaged me and showed me a picture of a beautiful camera strap that she had made. My immediate response was OOOH! Pretty!!! I want one yesterday!
I wanted one partly because HELLO, it’s pretty. And also because camera straps hurt when worn for hours and hours (and hours) in a row. One’s neck tends to chafe. And when one’s neck has been chafed all day, one is just a wee bit less cheerful when one gets home.
Because I shoot weddings with a company and use company equipment I asked Leah if there was a way she could make the cover easily removable. How quickly did she up and work that pattern out? Lickety split. That’s how quickly.
Just gorgeous. And can I say, Ahhhhhh… so comfortable. So soft. No chafing whatsoever.
And the loveliness gets better… a place to store a lens cap or camera body cap. Simple genius.
