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 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!

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. ;)


  1. That is so cute- I love the fabric! :)

  2. YES! Please do tutorials! My camera is one of those slim little point-and-shoots... but someday I hope to be able to afford a used SLR (Dad's work has some old Nixons!) Your strap looks so cute!

  3. I love it! Yes, I'm like Shaylynn... I just have a little point-and-shoot and would love to have a case! I really want a SLR.

  4. Leiabunny! I. Need. More. Posts! Please post more! *puppy dog eyes* Oh and I love your new banner!
