Camera Strap Redo

I made myself a ruffely camera strap….my husband hates it.  I told him I’d make him a manly cover if he actually used the camera…but he quickly informed me that NO covers are manly….manly men don’t use strap covers.   Good to know. :)  Anyways, I love this cover.

My first cover drove me nuts because it slid from side to side and I was constantly centering it.  This one has tapered ends and a small slit in the side that you slide the strap into.  There are oodles of tutorials for camera strap covers…but if I make another one I’ll snap some pictures for ya.

Maybe if my hubby did use the camera I wouldn’t have to take so many bathroom mirror pictures of myself.  :)  The blue fabric is by Anna Marie Horner & the dot is from Amy Butler’s Lotus line.

ps. the Modern Chain Quilt is being featured over at a Quilt Story today…check it out here!

I am also trying to get my fiance to use the camera more. When I bought a strap, I got this one with robots (http://www.etsy.com/transaction/24272773) since it was one of the few he said wasn't too feminine.

How stinking cute is this?!!!! Very....I love it. I made one of the other ones from your tutorial, but I believe I must make one like this too!

I don't like that mine slides back and forth either. I would love to see how you made this or maybe even just a picture showing the slit where you slide in the strap, I think I could take it from there. Thanks!!!

That ruffled strap is awesome. And Amy's Lotus line is one of the best fabric lines ever!!!!

Hey, I say enjoy your ruffles. As the only female in my house, I gotta take the ruffles where I can find them.

BTW, I finished quilting my raw edge circle quilt, made based on your great tutorial- have a look on my blog (it will look quite familiar!)

The ruffle is adorable! I bet you could get him to use a strap cover if you found the right fabric. Like one of Alexander Henry's Camouflage Girls or Pinup fabrics.

I bet a camera strap cover made of beef jerky would be manly. bahaha! ;)
Very cute! I want to make a strap cover too, with a pocket for my lens cap. I'm gonna lose that thing one of these days!

my husband is like yours - straps are forbidden - but because he is the ONLY one who uses the camera (i have a smaller one just for taking photos at my works and it doesn't have a strap) i don't have any excuses for making one, but your is soooo lovely!!!

i'm having a giveaway this week, just a little something something, but you are very welcomed there!!!

I made a strap cover for my brother who is a photographer for a living. He loves it! I made it from dark green and black batik - maybe that is why it is "manly" enough for him!

Kaitlyn said...

Another one done! Thanks again for the great tutorial. I tapered mine this time and this time I made one for me! Only b/c I just bought my first slr. Yea!

Rachael said...

I would love a tutorial for this ruffled one. Mine slides all over the place and it is driving me crazy.

C, Elle & Parker said...

I love this strap cover! But it looked like a total pain in the neck to feed the strap through those ends. SO I decided just to add a small bit of velcro on both my strap and the inside of the cover. Voila no adjusting the strap 50 times a day! I don't allow my husband to touch my camera so I'm not concerned with the ruffles. :)
