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.
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.
