Camera Strap Envy

I have seen all kinds of adorable camera straps out in blog world, but they are all for the big fancy cameras. My poor little camera wants to look pretty too! So I thought I would give it a whirl and see what I could come up with. It was a super easy project that only took me about 20 minutes max and I didn’t have a neat little tutorial to follow!

2. With right sides together stitch along both long sides. You can do the short sides too but I didn’t because I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish it off.

6. Now I have a pretty camera strap like all the fancy ones for my little point and shoot.

Enjoy!
