I wanted to make a usefully cool camera strap that didn't advertise the name of my camera on it. I looked on line to find unique camera straps, but most of them are too expensive, even the vintage retro ones (especially those!). The following camera strap that I made cost me $3 and my time.
Step two: Lose the metal….I cut the janky "belt buckle" off and decided to make some holes for eyelets that my camera straps would go through.
Step five: You can sew by hand or use your moms machine, but you will need to stitch up the ends of the old belt so they don't fray too much…you may want a little fray to add to the worn look of the strap.
Step six: Loop the nylon camera straps through the eyelets and sew them with a machine really well. Test out the strength of the straps by tying them to your kids ankles and swing them around the room a bit. Then you know for sure that they will safely hold your camera.
Hey Maker! Pat yourself on the back!
