Create a Custom Camera Strap Cover

Pictures are truly precious.  From the planned to candid ones they all tell a story.  They say something about you and so should your camera.  Most cameras are black and boring and your personality is not, so why not jazz that camera up.  I have a super easy Camera strap cover tutorial for you today and with all the wonderful May Arts ribbon in the shop, you can customize yours to just your personality.

Create a Custom Camera Strap Cover

Start by cutting two strips of fabric to be 2 ¼ inches x 24 ½ inches.  Select decorative ribbon and trim to the same length.  For comfort you will want to get the chenille dots for the inside of your strap.

Sew the ribbon onto the fabric strip.

For the chenille dots I did three stitches.  One in the center and on both edges.  For the top of the strap I wanted something with more movement so I layered two frilly ribbons and just stitched down the center.

Don’t forget to flip and sew each end of both strips ¼ inches to the back.

Now comes time to join them together.  Pin fabric strips with the faces together (the sides with the ribbon should be together).  Sew on the long edges ¼ inches in on each side.  Don’t forget to backstitch when sewing.  You should now have a tube.

For the last step just turn the “tube” right side out.  Add this cover by slipping your camera’s strap into the cover and securing it.

Make several at one time and change them out when you feel the mood to.

Look at how much personality this camera has now.
