My HOME MADE Camera Strap Slip Cover

I hadn't really thought about getting a strap cover for my camera, but then I saw this post on Sarah's blog and decided I HAD to have one!!!  I have a little experience with a sewing machine, I've pieced a few quilts, I made a few clothing items in high school home economics which weren't exactly wearable.  I found these fairly simple instructions for making your own camera strap.  My strap by all means did NOT turn out PERFECT, but it is usable and I LOVE it.  I especially LOVE the way it feels when I put my camera around my neck as the regular strap kinda rubs and isn't really very comfortable.  I plan to make several more of these, I have a whole box of scrap material begging to be used!!!  I may even get a little fancier with the next one, making ruffles, using 2 different fabrics, maybe some minky, OH the possibilities!


  1. Very cute! I wouldn't know what to do with a sewing machine if the thing started talking to me, giving me step by step instructions so I was more than happy to just slap my camera strap on my Christmas List. Bravo to you!

  2. Thanks Sarah! I made a second one which turned out WAY better and I bought some ribbon to try to make a little more frilly one. Shouldn't have to worry about DH trying to steal my camera now! LOL
