Scrappy Camera Strap {a tutorial}

I was incredibly blessed to be a part of Flamingo Toes fun Scrap Busting Extravaganza a few weeks ago. This is the project I shared.  A fast tutorial on using your fabric bits to make a Scrappy Camera Strap.

So, let's start. First, gather the materials needed.

I traced my camera strap {folded in half} adding a 1/2 inch for the seam allowance. When trimming my fabric strips, I just made sure the width was the same size as the width of the pattern, not caring about each individual scrap's length. Then, I randomly began to sew the fabric strips end-to-end, trying to mix up the colors and patterns. I ended up with a long strip of yummy fabric.

Iron the seams flat; then iron your pieces of interfacing onto the fabric strips for added durability. Fold over ends, iron and stitch.

Take some of your trim and lay it along each edge, pinning every couple of inches. Sew along each side, leaving the ends open.

Turn inside out and iron.

Now it's time to shimmy your darling Scrappy camera strap onto your camera.

I am hoping to add a few of these scrappy camera straps to my Etsy shop in the near future. Thanks for stopping by!
