Tripod Beanbag

During my photography classes, we need to use a tripod.  They can be cumbersome to lug about and set up, especially outdoors.  Our tutors use small beanbags which are easy to carry and can be plonked onto any sturdy surface, which allows your camera to rest still at all sorts of angles.

I have been waiting for the right project to use this cute fabric.

I filled a separate fabric pouch with dried beans and stitched it closed, so they won’t escape and the local wildlife won’t be able to feast on the contents too easily. You could use rice or polystyrene beads as well.  For travelling you could just use the outer cover and fill it with something at your destination.

And here it is ready for action!
