Tel Aviv · Tourism · Travel guide

We like you too :)

Most of Tel Aviv recognizes this title by now. Or at least the photo. Another little hot spot in the city. A cosy coffee spot with great snacks. And the small details that make the difference, like those little dog snacks. I don’t even know the name of the place. It’s located on Ben Zion Boulevard right by Habima, the national theatre and where Rothschild Boulevard starts.

DIY: Customize your photo camera

Do you have a camera? Do you like to personalize your items? Here’s a great idea to customize your camera strap. With clear and easy instructions to follow in Dutch via Elle.be and in French via Pop&Soda. Or you could do just like me: read it, print it out, plan it and then; instead of following the instructions, just improvise with what you have around you.

Materials needed: a camera, a slingshot, some fabric ribbon or an old belt, scissors and a sewing machine (or good handy sewing fingers for manual sewing or some good textile glue if you’re really impatient.)

In between my stash of yarn, collection of old and new fabrics, some denim and other recycled textiles and others, I found this wonderful ribbon from Liberty London and it perfectly fitted my camera strap! Really easy if you know how to sew and if not: again, just follow the instructions.

Here’s the result:
