Lovely Camera Strap...

Camera straps are a popular item to make in blog land. There are tutorials everywhere on how to make them.

I knew that I wanted a camera strap cover.
with a ruffle. {i LOVE ruffles}
with a pocket. {elastic pocket, please!}
that I could make last night with what I had.

And I found the perfect tutorial at Nursery Rhymes & Sweet Times!

I pretty much followed her tutorial with a few slight exceptions...

1) My ruffle fabric wasn't long enough. I was working with scraps that I had, so I cut a few stripes and sewed them together before ruffling... It worked great... you can't even see the seam!

2) I only did one wide ruffle so the strap was less bulky.

3) No fusing for me...

Here are some other great tutorials that I found while blog hopping!

I can definitely see some more camera straps in my future.




And don't forget - you can get updates by email or RSS over there ->

And stay tuned! I've got an awesome camera strap that I'll be giving away later this week!
