Since the children are old enough to carry their bags themselves, I like to take my big camera with me on excursions and journeys. Thanks to the in-the-hoop zipper bags I now have a place to store the accessoires that do not fit into the camera bag at the strap of it. I mde a small bag for the rechargeable batteries (design by EmbroideryDesigns), that is waterproof through a piece of transparent plastic table cloth. Additionally I made a zipper bag adorned with a design by Urban Threads for my mini tripod that does not mind water. Very practical and pretty. I hope, that the cam snaps with which the strings of the zipper bags are fastend to the bag string will hold.
