Hello Tokyo
This is a very simple project to keep you looking cute with your camera hanging around your neck and – best yet – it can be made in less than an hour.

  • How to make a camera strap. Handmade Camera Strap - Step 1
    Step 1

    Measure a length of grosgrain ribbon so that your camera will hang at a suitable level. Remember that the D-rings and leather tabs will add about 5 cm (2 inches) of length at each end. Here I’ve used a turquoise grosgrain ribbon and stitched a narrower pink twill ribbon down the centre.

    Cut two strips of leather (or faux leather) the same width as the wider ribbon and 8 cm (31/4 inches) long.

    Pass the leather strip around the flat bar of the D-ring and fold it in half over one end of the ribbon strap. Be sure to tuck the ribbon into the leather by at least 2 cm (3/4 inch) so that when the pieces are sewn together the stitching will hold. Pin in place to hold with sewing pins. Repeat with the other end of the strap.

    Stitch a box shape onto the folded leather through all layers. If necessary add extra stitching to hold the weight of your camera. Some heavier camera bodies or lenses might need a double row of stitching or an X through the middle of the box 
just to keep your special camera safe.
