In the Craft Room: a Fancy Camera Strap (aka Camera Dress) & one to Giveaway!

This is a SUPER easy craft! Seriously just straight sewing (or relatively close to straight!) :)

You need two strips of fabric long enough to cover your camera strap. Mine are 35" long and 6" wide.

Fold over both ends of each fabric twice and iron them flat.

Sew down the ends with two rows of stiching

Place good sides together

Sew down both sides, adding a zig zag to finish off the edges.

Turn it inside out

And voila :)

Slip it onto your camera and shoot away!!!

I have one looking for a loving home.
Anyone want it???

Ooo Do I get it because I was first to comment? :) No but seriously, I want one, I have the tutorial on my desktop waiting for me to make one. I know they aren't hard, just haven't gotten around to making one.
