Camera Strap from scraps DIY


Nothing like waiting till the last minute to pack.

This morning as I was checking everything off of my list and....

 It hit me!


My poor camera was naked.

No cute lil strap cover.
and
No time to waste.


So I grabbed the first bag of scraps I could find.

They were left over from my DIY carrots.


Loving the orange!




Maybe the linen for flowers ;)


With no time to research or make a pattern, I winged it!

I cut a long narrow strip that covered the strap.

Added some fluff stuff..


And sewed it together.

Pretty much I just made a tube..LOL


Like this..


I then ironed it flat.


I then started out making polka dot flowers.

My DIY for flower makin' can be found here.


It's easy and fast!


Not sure if I was feeling the orange flower or not.


Don't look too close at the back but I wanted to share how I attached them.

I added those cute little pins.

This way you can use them on about everything.

From camera straps to purses to blingin' up your toilet paper roll...

just kiddin!


I ditched the orange and decided on a slate blue instead.

I like!


Not too bad for a 45 minute project.


And before we start feeling too bad for the lil orange flower...

It found a home.

Right here on my laptop case that my Mom gave me.

Just perfect.


Kaylee, her friend Amanda and I are hitting the highway early in the AM

Atlanta bound for Haven!

Hope to share soon,
