DIY TRIPOD CARRIER

 Tripod

Hello Lovelies! How is everyone? Last week went by rather quickly for me.
  Today, I’m stepping away from fashion and showing you how to make a tripod carrier. I had been wanting something like this for a while. I mean, they have camera bags, why not tripod holders? I’m sure they’re out there somewhere, I just decided to make my own.
  And share with you.
  Because you’re great. 😀
  Anyway. Let’s begin.
  You’ll need:
  • 2 types of fabric – 1/2 yard each
  • interfacing
  • tape measure
  • tripod – for measuring
  • ribbon for tie
  1. First, you want to measure from the top of your tripod to the bottom, adding an inch on both ends for the seam allowance. This measurement will be the length of your fabric.
Length + 1in.

2. Measure around the base of the tripod. Add an inch for the seam allowance. This measurement will be the width of your fabric.

Width + 1in.

3. Then apply these measurements to your fabric and cut it out.

  4. I should have done this before I cut, but place your tripod on the fabric after marking it, to make sure there is plenty of room for it to fit.

5. Next, cut out a piece of fabric about 3 inches wide and the length of your bag fabric. This will be the strap.

6. I didn’t take a picture of this, but cut your interfacing slightly smaller than the bag and strap fabric.
Then iron it on. Or sew it on, whichever one you like to use. Sew strap right sides together and turn right side out. Pin the ends into the top and bottom of the bag’s side seam and sew into place. Sorry, I forgot to take pictures of this as well.

7. This measurement was a little bit tricky. For the bottom of your bag, measure the width and the draw a circle with the circumference minus 0.5 an inch.

Width – 0.5in = circumference
  You may have to trim it a bit once you cut it. I had to with mine. Just measure it against you bags bottom opening to see if it will fit without trimming.

8. Iron some interfacing to your bottom as well and then pin it in place. Sew.

9. Sew a hem onto the top of your bag leaving about an inch unseen by your side seam.

10. Thread your ribbon through the casing and out the other side.

11. I like to fray lock my ends so they won’t unravel.

And you’re finished! Now you have a beautiful tripod bag that is one of a kind.

  • Thanks for sharing. Even though I don't need a tripod carrier, I can use the same technique to make a cute carrier for other bulky items.

    Lovely tutorial! I don't use a tripod, but maybe I could adapt it a little to be a carrier for something else. 🙂
