Two for 99cents pot holder @ a 99 cent store

One toy about the size of a basketball (soccer ball for you folks on the other side of the pond). The toy contains about a 1/2 gallon milk container full of tiny plastic beads. I plan to undo the stitching on the edge so a funnel will fit in to fill in the pot holder with the tiny beads to turn it into a stabalizer bean bag. One side of the pot holder is quilted but the stitching does no go through the fabric on the other side (if it did it would be useless). The toy was in a junk store for $2.99 .

Don't spill any beads on the floor or you may slip and break your neck/arm for a lousy bean bag!

When this venture goes big time I will make Dan my c.e.o. for his resize advise!

I might be a bit slow, but can someone explain to me what this is, and how it works? (And why someone would want it?). Thanks so much... I promise I'll be less slow on the uptake later.

No Problem Bill W

Many people have found the use of a bean-bag as a way to stabalize their camera (digital and film). A bean-bag con be laid on a non level surface the filling will allow you to level the camera. The bean-bag can straddle a cars open window when shooting from a car.

Make search engine entry of photographic bean-bag and you will see many examples of their use that may be able to be applied to your photography.

The bean-bag idea sounds great Bill, I looked around and found a suggestion of using a boys tube sock and fill it up about 8 inches with beans then stitch accross leaving a little slack for the beans to give a little. Then fold the open end over the bean filled end and sew on a handle for easy carrying.

Yes, same principle, a sock makes a elongated bean bag.
