I spent the morning looking through etsy for a padded camera strap.
I searched 100's of listings for just the right one.
i couldn't find it
I found a few i liked but I wasn't settling for one I just liked, I wanted to love it, especially if I was dishing out $20+
I ended up not buying one. Instead I went to Hobby Lobby to see if I could find that fabric I just loved.
BUT I did find some decent fabric on clearance and fleece (for padding)
I am not totally in love with it but for a total of $4 I am pretty pleased with the outcome until I find what I want.
This is the first time I made a camera strap and wasn't completely sure how to do it.
I cut two pieces of the cotton and one piece of fleece which I sewed sandwiched in between the outer fabric to add padding.
I sewed a small pocket on the outside to put my lens cap in while I am shooting.
When I was finished I noted a few things I wish to do differently next time.
I also found some owl patterned fabric I had left over from a previous project that I plan to make a strap for as a Christmas gift, I have the perfect person in mind for it =)
