Camera Strap.


I have been itching to make a new camera strap all summer. In fact, it is one of the many things I have put on our Summer List. There are so many gorgeous ones on Etsy that are so inspiring that I just could not pass up the opportunity.

Well, this past week I did it. I got some really cool striped fabric and ta-da!

Done. Just a hemmed sleeve is really all it is. I set to make one for the big camera:

But it turned out that there was enough for the little one too.

I really like the way it came out but have come to realize that sewing is just not fun for me. I am not sure if it just my old, crappy sewing machine or if it is the looking for missing parts or if I just don't really enjoy sewing. Don't get me wrong - I always love the outcome and truly always think sewing is a good idea. The process however, the broken needles, sticking thread, too tight tension just is a huge pain in the a**. I have a bit more sewing to do this summer then it just might be time to retire the machine.

If you are interested in making one for your self there is a good tutorial at PhotoJoJo. Have fun!
