DIY: Aztec Fabric Camera Strap. This super simple sewing Diy is the perfect way to jazz up your camera whilst making it more comfortable to use. Synthetic stras can be scratchy and unsightly but we have raided our stash of vintage fabric and picked ou a real corker to cover ours!
Once you have chosen your fabric (ours a rather 80’s upholstery fabric) cut our a striproughly 5 x the width of your strap and 4cm longer at each end.
We’ve used pinking shears to minimise fraying edges.
Fold your fabric in half inside-out and pin securely.
Now sow keeping your seam allowance quite shallow (approx 1.5cm)
Turn this tube the right way and slip your strap inside.
Fold the raw ends inside and tuck to the length you like covering the ends of the strap.
Sew slowly through all the layers (Yep through the camera strap too!)
Finish by sewing threads in neatly into the fabric with a needle.
Press with iron and you are done!
