[What You'll Need]
-- Fabric pieces cut to 24" x 5.5"
one solid for inside, one pattern for outside
-- Coordinating thread
-- Sewing machine and supplies
scissors, pins, tape measure, iron, etc
-- Fusible fleece, felt pieces, extra fabric
2. Place right sides together, pin and sew along 24" edge leaving the short end open.
3. Turn fabric tube so right sides are now facing out.
4. Iron both side seams.
5. Turn raw edges in on short ends (approximately 0.25") pin and sew. Repeat for both ends. Iron.
6. Fold entire strap in half long ways, pin and sew along one 24" side.
Optional: I mentioned above that you can add felt/fusible fleece into your strap if you should desire a little padding. Option #1: sew a piece of felt (cut to 23" x 2") onto one half of the solid piece of fabric. This would be done after step 1. Proceed with the rest of the steps as usual. Option #2: complete step 2 then iron on fusible fleece (cut to 23" x 5") onto the solid piece before moving on to step 3.
Slide your new strap onto your camera's existing standard strap and ta-da! This project was so easy that I ended up making 2 of them for myself in a matter of a few days. Now I have options! My navy polka-dot strap has no padding since I don't really wear my camera for extended periods of time and just wanted something pretty. I added some felt Option #1 from above to the green floral strap to add a little comfort for longer wear should I need it.
Happy Friday all and happy crafting over the weekend!
