Camera Strap


I have had my nice camera for several months now.  I have been wanting to make a camera strap for it for a long time.  I was just waiting for the perfect fabric.  Then I found it.... Riley Blake's Chevron fabric!!!  

I just love the chevron fabric, it's the perfect size of chevron too, not too busy.  The color is great too!!  They have a bunch of fun colors, you should go check it out!

This is how I made it
I took the chevron fabric and cut it 6 inches wide and 36" long

I cut two strips of gray fabric 1" by 44".  I cut them using pinking sheers so the fabric wouldn't fray as much. Mostly I didn't want to sew the edges because sometimes I'm just plain lazy..... :)

I hemmed the edges of the chevron fabric.

Then after ruffling the gray fabric, I pinned it on and sewed it down the middle.

Next I folded it in half and then sewed it together.

I flipped it inside out and then added some cute rosettes to it.

And that's it, super easy and cute!!! I put it on my camera strap.

Sorry for the not so good pictures, as you can see, my good camera is right there so I had to take it with my junky camera...
