Been wanting to make this ... finally did

I've seen these camera straps all over craft blogs and marked them as "to do". Then I found this great tutorial on cluck cluck sew and so while Melissa was here in March we made them.

We followed the tutorial but we wanted to sew in some stripes to add dimension so when the tutorial added the interfacing we just used a thicker interfacing and did the following... (Again, we just followed this tutorial for all our measurements etc. )

Once we ironed on the thick interfacing we measured and drew lines every half-inch.

Then straight stitched down those lines

And finished up according to the tutorial.


Super easy and I love how it turned out.

I also love that it is removable so I can wash it and make a new one when I get tired of this print.

Look at me... I'm sewing!!!!
