I read tutorial after tutorial trying to figure out exactly what I wanted. Did I want to take apart my old strap and make a new permanent one? Or did I want to make a slipcover for the strap so I could change up the look as the mood strikes? Did I want ruffles? Patchwork? The options were endless.
I could have spent another month obsessing over the choices, but I finally decided to try the patchwork slipcover tutorial at Above All Fabric. Her instructions were easy to follow and I like how she top stitched the seams. It just gives it that extra polish. Plus it was a good way to work on my sewing skills.
Here's my version. It took me almost two hours because I am not an experienced sewer and I triple-checked the directions at every step. I know it can be done in a lot less time next time around.
I like it. Makes it easy to find my camera. Someday soon I hope to make another one to strap onto this bad boy. The new Canon D60. Available for preorder at Amazon.com. Sweeeetttt!
