Camera Strap Covers

For all of those aspiring photographers out there, I thought you might want some inspiration!  I found a store on etsy that sells camera strap covers and I just fell in love with them.  So....of course I said......I can make those and off to Joann's I went!  I had no clue what I was doing so I googled for "Camera Strap Cover Tutorials" and sure enough there are plenty of them.  Although, none were as cool as the lady on etsy.  I stared at the pictures from etsy for probably 30 minutes before I figured out that my pattern wasn't like hers.  So.....I made one and of course it was too small for my camera strap. LOL!  I think if I put some elastic in it I could use it as a headband when I am taking off my make up.  I ended up making a total of three and I am still not pleased with my work, but they are good enough for now.  At least I can tell between my camera and my dad's when we are at family functions. 

The first and third covers that I made.  The second one I made is on my camera and I didn't want to mess with taking it off!
If you want to make one of these, I suggest getting 1/8th of a yard of fabric for each side.  It was the perfect amount and super cheap!  I also want to add a lens cover holder to this, because I am always setting it down and forgetting where I placed it.  It will be super easy to do, I just never got around to finishing it because I moved onto another project!  

If you want to buy one of these, I strongly suggest you go to:
