How I made a custom hard lc-a+ bag out of paper, glue, perspex and a roll of film!
So I wanted a small bag to carry all my camera stuff in (e.g. Film)
and I didn’t really like any of the ones I could find online, so I thought: Why not make my own?!
I started by printing out a custom lc-a+ paper template designed by Mijonju (one of my favorite lomographers)
You can download the template here:
I cut out the template and folded it roughly, I had to cut out some of the tabs as i wanted the camera to open at the top.
Then I used a hot glue gun and glued a couple of spare pieces of leather to the template, just to strengthen the part that would be opening and closing all the time.
After that I put the camera together!
Depending on how thick the card you used was and how tough you wanted the bag to be you could probably stop here and use the bag as it is. But that wasn’t enough for me :) I wanted this to be solid, so I got a sheet of perspex, cut it into the same shape and glued it together with the hot glue gun.
When I was putting together the perspex I left a hole on either side of the camera. Then I got an old roll of film and threaded it through the holes to use as a strap!
That’s it! Let me know what you think :)
