camera strap slipcover: prototype
A clean house, and folded laundry are highly overrated. I'd rather make this, so I did :) A few improvements, I would change fabrics to something slightly less busy yet still modern but I had this around and it worked fine. Next, I'd shorten mine a bit to expose the "pleather" part on each end. Additionally, I will finish off each edge better, and maybe do an X inside a box, like I have seen on some others. I will also make it a tad wider so I can top stitch over both sides, that really finishes things off right. I am so grateful for all the sites that inspired me. I notice some of the above links are not working but if you do a search at etsy for "camera strap" you will see plenty.
Oh, a tad heavier fabric would look nicer too. I hesitate to line this with anything b/c it was pretty tricky to turn and then get onto the strap itself. Although, I am a notoriously BAD cutter and then my straight lines when sewing could only be called semi-straight at best. I will share once I make another and work out some of the kinks.
Today, I made this recipe for the teachers' conference tomorrow after school. Super easy. Super yummy. Peanutty Buckeye Bars. Photo from BHG website.
