This is such a simple and quick project, and it makes a great gift for any photographer, professional or otherwise. When I read through the tutorial on Skip to my Lou, I knew I could do it. So, I decided to try it for Ryan’s aunt, who planned our getaway to St. Louis a few weeks back and had a naked dSLR camera strap – the shame. 😉
Naked no more.
Instead of using only two fabrics, I pulled out a charm pack that I had in the craft closet. The 5-inch squares are PERFECT, as the strap is just about 2 inches. So, once you factor in seam allowances, you are good to go. I just sewed them together, quilted them with fusible fleece interfacing on the seams, folded it in half and “ta-da.”
That’s about as close as I get to a tutorial. 😉
I think it turned out cute and have visions of lots more of these for (who else?) myself. I mean, a lady has to have a strap to go with all the seasons, right?
What do you think?
