Since I still haven't given all you lovely followers a tutorial, I was thinking I'd do one for these camera strap covers and, for those of you who have smaller cameras without neck straps, a cute carrying case. What do you think? (You'd probably get the strap cover tutorial first though, since I haven't decided on the best way to make a case yet. ;)

Camera Strap Cover
Since even before I got my slr camera, I've been drooling over all the camera strap covers I've seen on Etsy. A couple days ago I told my mom about all the cute covers there were. Her response was, "I bet those are super easy to sew." At that point I figured it would be worthless to keep wishing for one and that I should just make my own. And that's what I did yesterday afternoon. The first one a made turned out too small for my camera's strap, but it fit almost perfectly on the strap of my mom's point-and-shoot. Then I made a second one...but I forgot to sew on the pocket before I sewed the two pieces together...so the pocket looked kind of out of place. So I went back to the fabric scraps and pulled out some cute retro-flower patterned fabric and made another strap. Lo and behold, it turned out perfectly!
