Camera Strap Redux

I woke up early yesterday, and by 8:30 had fashioned myself a new camera strap using a few bits from the commercial one that came with my Nikon.

Camera Strap Redux by Poppyprint

If you want to know how, I took a few photos and made a tutorial set on flickr.  Click here and scroll through the pictures in the set - there are some instructions with each photo that should give you enough info if you want to try it yourself.   I love all of the patchwork camera straps that flickr/blogger/etsy folks make, but I figure a pretty patchwork strap would likely cancel any plans I have of my husband carrying this anvil of a camera for me once in a while.  The Michael Miller Quilt Pirates print is a fav of mine and I'm sure even the boys won't mind it around their necks.

Love the pirates, fab idea!

I keep meaning to redo my strap, but like you, I don't really want a girly look. I shall check out your tute!

Brilliant! You just gave me an idea, because the kids set my husbands camera strap on fire... and now I can fix it!!

That fabulous fabric looks a little familiar! Way to rally the troops for camera carrying duty! Make it fun and they will follow. Clever idea, very hip look.
