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…
Cute project! I really need to dust off my sewing machine. It feels like it's been ages since I used it. This feels like the perfect get back into sewing project. Thanks for sharing.
