Over the years one of the top requests that I receive over time has always been, “Can I supply my own fabric to make a scarf camera strap”? And although I’m willing to do some customization for clients, the process of having other send the fabric to me has always been a bit tough to navigate.
This weekend I’ve finally made a way available for those that want the ultimate in custom choice – you get to choose your OWN fabric to make the beautiful and comfortable camera strap that you want, while still getting the quality commercial grade hardware and leather you can’t purchase at your local craft and fabric store. Problem solved!
If you read my previous post regarding the labor of love that went into the detailed instruction sheets, you’ll know the years of DIY instruction making experience I’ve built these on, and how much I want for you to succeed in this – because what fun is a project that’s just a frustration and disappointment?! I’ve even been brainstorming on additional videos that can offer insight into helpful sewing techniques for your DIY journey. I’ll keep you posted on that!
Our NEW *Instructions + Hardware Only* DIY Camera Strap Kits come complete with detailed PDF instructions download, a full set of commercial grade hardware, nylon straps, and leather tabs (available in THREE colors). It also includes the candles for sealing your nylon strap ends (included in the instructions) and the clothespin clips you’ll need to hold things in place throughout. These are included for extra convenience so you don’t have to purchase large packs for your individual project.
Just add fabric, thread, glue, and your heavy duty sewing machine!
This pdf will give you all of the basic knowledge that you need to make them for yourself, and others. Note: This kit is for personal use only, I ask that you alter the design to express your personal style if you make them for sale.
I share all of the secrets that I’ve learned along the way in this pdf. It’s over 30 pages long and features 50 photos! (I tend to err on the side of including more than is needed to be sure that things are extra clear.)
With so many of us welcoming a bit more time into our schedules as the kids go back to school, this is a great project to tackle to feed that inner personal creativity that may have fallen by the wayside during the summer months if you have kids.
