I have an Instax Mini 25 polaroid camera from Fujifilm that I’m very fond of. It was bought in Shanghai, China in the summer a couple of years ago. (It was hooot.)
It’s automatic, so I don’t have to manually focus when I use it. I haven’t been able to use it as much as I’d like, because I want to enjoy the moment right there and then instead of experiencing it through a lens…
Nevertheless, the ones that I do have haven’t had a proper place to be until today. I found an old album intended for business cards that fit the polaroid pictures just perfectly. The album was white and spotty, so I decided to sew a cover for it. A few hours later and tadaa – fancy new cover sewn by hand.
Some fabric, a pair of scissors and needle and thread. I didn’t bother to measure it up, so the black back came out a bit uneven. I’ll claim it was intentional, you know, as part of the charm.
I’m assuming people don’t like having their picture posted on the interwebs without their permission, so I covered their faces with flowers… sneaky, indeed.
