Camera Strap Idea

by Chris on March 29, 2010

My new camera and I have been building a very good relationship.  There seems to be a bit of a language barrier, however.  She speaks in ISO, Aperture, and White Balance; whereas, I only understand hot glue, fabric, and spray paint.

I figured things might get better if I could make her a brand new strap cover.  I contemplated typing up a tutorial, but I’m just going to link you to the tutorials I used.  They explained it way better than I could.  And, apparently, they sew better than I do as well. :(

The best part about this project is that it was completely free.  I have tons of fabric waiting to be used for some “prettifying project”, and it came in quite handy.

Have I ever told you what a messy worker I am?  It’s ridiculous, really.

I made four and one turned out.  Figures.  I have learned that it is nearly impossible for me to sew a straight line.  Am I missing something here?

In my defense, the pink one was gathered fabric that was being very difficult for me.  Let’s just say that’s the reason it looks like a snake rather than a camera strap cover.

I went back and forth between Made by Petchy and Tidy Mom.  Thank you so much to both of you for such great instructions.  Now if you could just teach me how to sew a straight line…
