Camera Strap Fun

For years I’ve been using the blah black strap that came with my camera.  I was just never motivated to make myself a camera strap.  Then I got a new camera and the new strap had the model of the camera embroidered right onto the strap in high contrast white on black. Why do they do that?  I felt like I’d be a walking advertisement.  The Look at me and my camera! strap is not my style.  So the day the new camera came I found this tutorial on Allen Design Studio’s blog and made myself a camera strap cover.

Honestly, it was quick and easy.  Most of my time went to selecting fabric to go along with my ribbon.  And that is the most fun part of sewing.


The brilliant part of this tutorial is the tearing of the fabric and the nice raw edges.  It was a Why didn’t I think of that? moment.

Craft Apple

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? Well, crafting is my apple. It’s what I do to maintain my sanity while taking care of my family. I homeschool my three boys, ages 14, 15, and 16), am a quilter, a bagaholic, and pattern designer.  Oh – and I also like taking pictures.
