Turn a Diaper Bag Into a Stylish Camera Bag

Make: Diaper Bag Turned Stylish Camera Bag

This helpful and handy how-to post comes to us from OnSugar blogger Just 5 More Minutes, who shows us how to turn a diaper bag into a useful photography bag:

My camera goes everywhere with me — especially on our Airstream trips. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable carrying around a camera bag that just screams, "There is an expensive camera in this bag." I wanted something more discreet and not so obvious yet stylish at the same time. I scoured the Internet trying to find an alternative. I wanted something that could carry all of my equipment as well as my personal belongings, so I didn't have to haul my purse along, too. No luck, at least, nothing I liked was out there.

Diaper Bag turned Stylish Camera Bag

Then I started thinking about diaper bags. Most of them come with pockets galore (perfect for lenses, etc.), and some of them can be rather stylish as well. I found this diaper bag at Nordstroms and I just fell in love. Doesn't look like a diaper bag, does it? Or even a camera bag for that matter. The only problem was that the bag was not padded — but it did come with a diaper changing pad.

I started thinking I could easily eyeball the sizes of the inside pockets and "cut out" from the diaper pad pieces that could snugly encase my lenses.

So that's what I did.
