Camera strap made from old shoulder bag

Some time ago I sorted out an old shoulder bag, whose leatherette has already come off in several places. Since not all parts of the bag were unusable, I cut off zippers, buttons, inner fabric and straps and stored them for possible future sewing projects.

Now I have used the strap of the bag and the recently woven kumihimo ribbons to make a new camera strap.

I think I’ve done well.. 🙂

A westafrican inventor has built a 3D-printer out of electronic waste!

The waste problem in Africa is known. Almost everyone has seen pictures of enormous piles of trash with children playing on them and adults on the lookout for some higher value materials to finance their life…

As did Kodjo Afate Gnikou from West-Africa. He built a 3D-printer out of electronic waste, which you can buy for $100.
