DIY Easy Camera Strap Tutorial

This camera strap is so easy you won’t believe it. The best part is that makes the original strap more comfy when you hang it on your neck. It also gives a girly touch, which is always good, right?

What you need:

  • 1 strip of Fabric A 4 and 3/4 inches x 20 and 1/2 Inches
  • 1 strip of Fabric B 4 and 1/4 inches x 19 and 1/2 inches
  • 1 strip of felt 2 x 20 inches
  • 1 strip of felt 1 and 1/2 x 19 inches


You will use fabric A with a strip of felt 2 x 20 inches and Fabric B with a strip of felt 1 and 1/2 x 19 inches.


Fold fabric A and B longwise right side together and stitch each one on the long side. Turn them over.


Press making sure the seam is in the middle of each strip. Then insert the strip of felt inside each fabric.


Fold inwards each end of each strip and stitch to close them.


Now put both strips together as centered as possible {one is slightly smaller than the other} and with seams facing each other. Pin in place.


Stitch each long side leaving just about 1/4 inches seam allowance. It’s better if you use a small and tight stitch. I used pressure 3 of 4 and stitch 3 of 4 on a Singer machine. Leave both ends open.


Insert camera strap. It should go from leather end to leather end in the case of Nikon Straps this may vary from camera strap to another so measure them first to make sure my measurements fit your camera strap.


That’s it! There you have it! Super easy! I had it done in less than an hour even taking pictures LOL.


Hope you like it. Do you have a camera strap??? If so, is it handmade or bought???
