Lens Buddy

In addition to the lens creatures I made using hair scrunchies, I also performed surgery on a teddy bear I got from the dollar store so I could turn him into a lens buddy.  Here’s what he looks like on my camera:

Pretty cute isn’t he?  It was so easy to make this…maybe even easier than the scrunchie lens creatures actually.  Just cut him open front and back, push his guts (stuffing) to the side, sew some elastic inside him by whip stitching the front and back together (with the elastic inside) leaving a small opening at the top in the back with the tails of the elastic sticking out and pinned to the back.  Once you are done sewing about 90 percent of the front and back together, pull the elastic tails tight so the buddy fits snug on your lens.  Tie a knot in your elastic, shove it inside and finish whip stitching the “incision” shut!  Eazy peazy lemon squeazy!
