My camera strap...

I bought a book to make a camera bag and camera strap, but as usual patterns are too overwhelming and daunting for me, I am not that great at sewing when it comes to bags or clothes. I made quilt tops for years and quilts are usually straight lines and blocks, so I was pretty good at that. But the whole pattern thing and matching seams, UGH...
I asked my friend who is an expert seamstress (Tanya) to help me out, but we ended up just making our own pattern for a cute camera strap. We will attempt a camera bag some other day.

I had this fabulous fabric I had been dying to use on something, it is so retro and I love retro things.
After the strap was finished I thought it needed something more, I got my button stash out and we worked out some cute ones, I just love how it all turned out! I even used the parts of the strap that were on the strap that came with the camera!


Now I can wear my camera with pride and know I have my very own unique strap, I can't wait to take it to the scrapbook crop I am attending later this month!

This ROCKS, Chica - I still need to send you the photos I took of it around your neck, but these showcase it better, I fear! Don't sell yourself short - you are a fabulous seamstress yourself!!! XOXO
