How To Make A Camera Strap Cover
These are really easy, and make a great gift. They fit any standard DSLR camera strap, (Canon/Nikon) my strap is about 2″ wide. I made mine two sided, but if you wanted just one fabric like the one above, just make one strip about 5.5″ wide.
1. Cut two strips 2.75″ by 27″ long.
2. Sew the strips right sides together, then press seam open.
3. I made mine padded with Pellon fusible light fleece interfacing. You need about 5.5″by 27″. This is optional of course, I like the feel of the padding, but you can skip this step if you don’t mind the hard strap. Iron on the fusible interfacing according to directions, and trim excess.
4. Fold one end in about one inch, and then again over one inch to hide the seam and make a clean finish.
