No. 261 - DIY Camera Strap Slipcover

For awhile now, I wanted to make a pretty slipcover for my camera strap,
and I finally got around to doing it yesterday.
Here are the step-by-step instructions.

First, measure the length of your strap and then add an extra 1".

Cut out that same length of the base material.

Cut out a strip of the ruffle material that is double the length.

Zigzag the ruffle strip and then sew a basting stitch down the middle.

Pin and gather the ruffle strip to one side of the base material.

Sew down the middle.

Sew the base material together down one side and then feed it through with a safety pin.

Feed the camera strap through.

 Finished product!

I got my inspiration from here.
