Hello! Today we have a fun tutorial that might come in handy during the vacationing season….an easy DIY Camera Strap Cover!
If you are new to sewing then this is a great project to try and if you are an experienced seamstress then it makes for a quick afternoon sew.
Here’s what you will need to make these camera strap covers:
*1 piece of fusible fleece cut 22″ by 5″
*5 squares of random fabric cut at 5″ by 5″
*Your sewing machine, thread, and a pair of scissors
And here are the instructions for how to make it:
Step #1. Sew your five squares right sides together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance in one long line (as shown in the picture below. Press.
Step #2. Center your fusible fleece on the wrong side of your newly sewn fabric strip. (You should have about 1/2″ of fabric on the top and bottom of your strip that will not be covered by the fusible fleece.) Iron the fusible fleece to the fabric.
Step #3. Quit lines 1/2′ apart vertically down the length of your fabric strip (as shown in the picture below).
Step #4. Turn the top of your fabric strap down 1/2 inch to the wrong side and top stitch. (As shown in the picture above.) Repeat this process on the bottom of your fabric strip.
Step #5. Fold your fabric strip in half lengthwise with right sides together and sew together from top to bottom.
Step #6. Using a turning tool or chopstick turn your newly made tube right side out.
Step #7. Slide your cover onto your camera strap and enjoy!
NOTE: We shared this tutorial awhile back over at Lolly Jane and on the same day we posted an easy variation of it over here. Instead of quilting it we added pom poms! So if you would like to check out the instructions for that you can do that here: Pom Pom Camera Strap Cover.
