today we have natalie in the house! i have been complaining that there are rarely any camera straps I love to look at. and the ones i DO love, are quite a lot of money (remember those beautiful woven ones from the 70’s, where did they all go?) so today, we are making a DIY camera strap that sort of blew my mind! natalie totally needs to make an etsy shop full of these, right?

what you’ll need:
• 2 yds cotton webbing (we used 1 1/2 inch natural cotton)
• masking tape
• acrylic craft paint
• 2 swivel hooks (found in the jewelry or with purse handle section of most craft stores)
• fabric glue
• needle and thread
• metallic leather or vinyl (optional)

let’s get to it…

the steps:
• measure out the desired length of your strap and add 2 inches.
• on a work surface use tape to create a geometric design taking care to make sure tape is fully adhered to the webbing. We used the rounded side of a bone folder to smooth the edges on the tape to be sure our paint line were crisp.
• now the fun part, apply paint to webbing. Be sure paint is dry before attempting to remove tape. Watching paint dry is a skill that takes practice.

• now that your strap is looking amazing, slide the ends through the swivel hook giving yourself about an inch of strapping on the reverse side and glue. Be sure to give the hook a little bit of space to move when gluing.
• because you’re hanging your beloved camera around your neck add a few stitches to the glued area for good measure!

** small side note, if you have a rather heavy DSLR you may want to choose a wider strapping than what you can fit through the hardware of the swivel hook. To accommodate this we used a piece of metallic leather to create an adapter that we then glued and sewed to the end of the painted strap.

now you’re ready to take your made up camera to the streets & show her off.

make different sizes for different cameras, why dontcha? we would love to see photos of your creations, tweet bri the pics @designlovefest ok? go on, get your MAKE on.

and hey! two more spots in blogshop, photographers!
