Tired of being uncomfortable & unfashionable while taking pictures with your DSLR? Look no further– this simple sewing project is for you! (ps- i used the leftover fabric from this project)

Supplies Needed:
-Camera Strap
-4 strips of fabric measuring 28″ x 3.75″
-2 strips of heavy weight interfacing (fusible or sew-in)
-Fabric strips for embelishments
-Coordinating thread & sewing machine
-Scissors

Start by fusing the heavy weight interfacing on to two of the strips of fabric. Trim the edges if they aren’t exactly the same width or length. So now you should have two strips of interfaced fabric & two strips of regular fabric.
Photobucket
Pin one of the the interfaced fabrics to one of the regular fabrics with the right sides facing each other. Sew around the entire rectangle leaving one small end open (for turning).
Photobucket
Turn fabric so the right side of the fabric is facing out, and turn under the raw edges of the open end. Iron & topstitch. (I like to top stitch both ends for uniformity!) Repeat this for the other set of interfaced fabric & regular fabric.
Photobucket
When both pieces are put together, pin the pieces together and sew two seams along the long edges. 

Photobucket
voila! All you need to do now is thread your strap through the opening on both ends.

You can stop here if you’d like.. but I suggest adding a little sumthin’ sumthin’ to it.
I added a cluster of rosettes to one end of mine. See this tutorial for an awesome video on how to make rosettes– that is if you don’t already know how :)

And there ya have it! Now you can look stylish & be comfortable taking pictures :)
