..then saw the BIG BLACK BORING CANON STRAP..... i thought....
..how UGLY is THIS!!!.....
So I turned This........Into This!!
I had remembered seeing various tutorials on Camera straps, and Camera Strap Covers...etc and with my own fabric arriving this week... I thought it suited perfectly!!!
It definately turned my camera from looking a bit Industrial to a little bit more lovely. It was easy and quick... the hardest part was unpicking the hardware at the bottom of the original strap.
This tutorial with the ruffle came from Crap Ive Made and she also did another pieced Camera strap tutorial here. You can also find another tutorial here. But there are lots out there.... Just look to find the Perfect one for you!.. In most of the tutorials... they use heavy fusible interfacing. I just used left over batting and I found it worked perfectly... and its WAY more comfy on my neck than the original Canon strap!

That looks great, I love the fabric!ReplyDelete
That's beautiful...I love your idea!ReplyDelete
Lovely! I really need to make one of these for our camera!ReplyDelete
That's really nice! A camera strap cover has been on my to do list for ages - I've not seen the ruffle one though I think it's just inspired me to do a little make for me!!ReplyDelete
I love it. A new cover has been on my list forever. I think I need to break down and order one from somebody else.ReplyDelete
I just got a new Canon DSLR too. Definitely in need of a new strap cover. But I'm kind of intimidated--by the camera, not making the strap cover! So one thing at a time. BTW, the ruffles are super cool!!ReplyDelete
So very pretty, love the fabric. Nice job, Rebecca! I would love a DSLR, but when I dropped my point and shoot on the cement the other day (not good), we decided we needed to replace that...but I plan to make a cute case for it this week, before our upcoming trip to Italy- yahooo!!!! We'll see if I get it done :-)ReplyDelete
Stupendous! I could do without the ruffles (but then, I'm a boy), but love it all the same.ReplyDelete
