I Put my Engineering Cap On

Before kids I used to be a software engineer  -- it was actually quite rewarding.  Figuring out problems basically in virtual air - that is how I think of computer programming.  I am a puzzle person - you feel accomplishment when the puzzle is complete & it is a bummer when you are missing pieces.

So a customer wanted a lens cap holder for the camera strap - easy enough right.  Except lens caps are the same width as the straps that I make.  I have made wider straps with lens caps but personally I do not like the wider strap - it does not lie as nicely and the strap loses some of its sophistication when it gets wider. So I came up with a solution:

It is wonderful because it slips right on any camera strap cover - so if you have already invested in some straps – not realizing that you needed a lens cap pocket but realize it would have been really nice - whoa la! These will come in basic colors too! Monogrammed with initials to make them pop - I think will make them pretty fun!

It is a dual pocket so you can put your lens cap on one side & memory card/filters or other things on the other side.  Even business cards & credit cards.

I have big plans for it too - some cute spring ideas - so stay tuned!
