Make your own camera strap cover

Sewing/Crochet

Looking for a way to use of some of your fabric scraps? You might want to try out this fabulous custom camera strap cover tutorial by Priddy Creations. It’s simple for beginners and takes very little fabric to complete.

I had about 1/3 yard of Hobby Lobby fabric leftover from a baby blanket project that was just enough to spice up my boring black camera strap. With a little fusible interfacing and about 30 minutes of sewing time…my new camera strap was born. What do ya think?

Amy’s tutorial would be simple to modify and create double-sided strap covers or even patchwork ones. I plan to try out several versions as gifts for friends and family this year.

My one recommendation is to ensure you avoid too much bulk on the edges of your seams with the fusible fleece. I sadly went through three needles on my machine to make this first cover (though it was probably just user error!) *lol*

Anyone else been sewing lately? I’d love to see links to your creations!
