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

 

Directions:

You will use the fabric A with strip of felt 2 x 20 inches and Fabric B with 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 seam 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.

    Hi! Stopping by from Whatever Goes Wed! I love this strap and am going to have to learn to sew so I can make one. I have been wanting to for a while, but you make it look easy. Pinned! Thanks for sharing.

    What a great idea for a camera strap. The ones that come with the camera always dig into the neck, this is great way to stop that. The next place I’m headed is to check out your camera pouch.

    1. Camila

      Yayyy Thanks so much Rochelle! I’m so super glad you like it! I know what you mean about the neck… That’s my main motivation to make the strap! OMG you have no idea how good it feels now! Thanks so much for your sweet comment and for taking the time to stop by!

      Hugs

    I like your pink and white stripes fabric.
    I don’t have a camera strap, just a wrist strap for my little camera.

    1. Camila

      Glad you like this Julie… You can always make something like this for your wrist strap too! what a cute touch! Thanks so much for visiting!

    Super cute, I’ve been wanting to make one for myself, now I just need to do it. Thanks for sharing

    1. Camila

      This is the best thing ever Havalah. I was about to buy one before making this because those straps are killers but then I figured it would be easier and cheeper to make one myself. I’m sure yours will be awesome!!!

      Hugs and thanks for stopping by!

    So cute! I need to follow the instructions and make one for my camera because this is cheaper than buying one and so customizable.

    1. Camila

      It’s definitely customizable… And you can make different ones and match with clothes.. how cute that would be!!! Now I need to go and make more LOL.

      Thanks so much for your sweet visit!
      XOXO

    You and your daughter are seriously some of the most photogenic people on the planet! And this project is so practical yet adorable. I’ve been wanting to sew a camera strap! Adding this to my TO MAKE list…pinning and stumbling, too! XO

      ha ha ha Lauren you are always the sweetest friend! It’s fun to have pictures with Emma {when she is up for it anyways}. I have lots of fun! I’m thrilled to inspire you in making this and I would LOVE to see it when you make it… I’m pretty sure I’ll need to make another one after yours LOL.
