Camera Strap

18 Jul

I am into instant gratification sewing right now.  Well, I am almost always in that frame of mind- so nothing has really changed.

Anyways, here is a great craft if you only want to spend a short amount of time inside before you hit the lake again.

A camera strap cover:

I am not into advertising for companies.  Have never understood shirts that say in huge letters ADIDAS or AMERICAN EAGLE.  The shirt you are wearing is fine and all but I just don’t need to know where you got it.  This is part of the reason I wanted to cover my NIKON camera strap.  The other reason is because a handmade strap is so much more pleasant to look at =)  Okay, I will climb down off my soapbox here and continue on.

I sewed these fabrics together over a month ago and could not decide what to do with it.

I loved the fabric so much that I wanted to make sure it was something that I would use a lot.  A camera strap cover would be perfect.

All I did to make this was:

1.  Place camera strap, with the right sides of the fabric touching the strap, onto the fabric to measure.

2.  Pin the fabric together so you can only see the wrong side of the fabric.

3.  Sew the fabric together and then turn it inside out.

4.  Fold under and sew the ends of the strap together so it will not fray.

5.  Place your new beautiful strap on your camera and enjoy.

    I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun it is to see my cast off fabrics being well loved by you in all your creativity. And here’s another fun fact … I made a camera strap too. Mine was not a cover, it was just it’s own strap. But how fun is that?
