Recently I have been given a beautiful scarf. Since I am unfortunately cursed and scarfs doesn´t become me, I simply changed the scarf to a camera strap. I didn´t touch the original seams of the strap, because I did not want to lose the warranty for my camera and instead sewed a cover for the strap. And as always, I also have a tutorial for you:
Material and tools
A scarf, scissors, measuring tape, two snaps, a snap attaching tool and everything for sewing.
First you have to measure the length of your camera strap and shorten your scarf to the appropriate length.
Once you have folded your scarf lengthways, sew it together – right sides facing.
Now turn the fabric at both ends of the scarf inwards and sew the hem. I like the contrast of white and pink but of course you can also select yarn in the color of the fabric to make the seam invisible.
Next, I sewed two mini-straps from small fabric rectangles. First I folded the fabric lengthwise, sewed it right sides together and turned the straps.
To attach the snaps I’ve used a snap attachment tool.
As a last step you just have to pull the camera strap through the cover and gather the fabric at the ends with the two mini-straps.
