Camera Strap Tutorials

As I'm sure you know, blogging and etsy selling is often all about the pictures! What better way to combine your love for crafting and photography then with your very own DIY camera strap! I certainly thought it was a great idea, and so did how about orange as they did a post all about camera-related sewing projects. Since I'm already quite pleased with my camera case I was particularly drawn to the strap tutorials and lucky for us there are two available at different skill levels! Yay!

  3. That's right, Mom! Sewing little things has got to be fun!

    Neat straps. I think the fabric is what makes them look so awesome. I'd love to try making one sometime, but I'm pretty busy laying around on the couch eating all day.
