My DYI project

I don’t know about you guys but sometimes I don’t like having to use the strap my camera came with. I feel like I’m advertising Sony or something… so I decided to make my own camera strap slipcover! It may not be as professional looking as some of the ones I saw online but I'm quite happy with it.

I began by gathering my supplies...
001
Picking a fabric...
003
Making some measurements..
002
The final result..
004

I plan to make more since my Mom said she’s going to help me out with her sewing machine. Oh, and if you want an in-depth DYI tutorial, Click here.

It's raining as I finish up this post and while I usually love the rain, it prevented me from going out and taking a few pictures today. No worries though, I love drinking hot tea and reading your blogs <3 Thank you all so much for your comments!

haha I never thought about how using the camera straps is like advertising for them, but you got a great point! now I gotta sew my own straps like you ;)

Oh wow, that came out really good! I'm not exactly a fan of the obnoxious ones that come with cameras myself. Too bad I'm not as skilled as you, I ended up just using an old leather strap from my grandfather's camera.

Have a great weekend!
