What’s up, guys?
I haven’t done a DIY post in quite a while! I finally got around to making one this weekend and it was a lot of fun. When I first bought my dSLR, it came with a plain and rather boring black strap. After a while, I decided to make a more colorful strap, and thus this tutorial was born. 😉
⚫ DIY Camera Strap ⚫
Let’s get started. 🙂
To start, take either some wide ribbon or a scarf and cut it to a length of about 36 inches. I’m using some wide silk ribbon for this tutorial.
Take your two clips and pull the ends of the ribbon through the openings. I bought these clips at Hobby Lobby in the sewing section, and they work really well.
Now fold the ribbon down and sew it into place with a needle and thread. Don’t worry if your stitches aren’t perfect – mine definitely aren’t. XD
Now cut a few inches of contrasting ribbon and sew/glue it around the strap to cover the stitches.
Now that the strap is complete, take your camera and attach a keyring to both sides.
Then just clip the clips onto the keyrings…
And you’re done! 😀
It’s so pretty!
Laura kindly agreed to be my model for these pictures. 😉
This is another camera strap that I made. Instead of ribbon, I used the extra strap to a leather purse! I think it turned out super cool.
If you make a strap for your camera, I’d love to see! You can email me a picture at firstname.lastname@example.org. 🙂
Have a great day!
