Tufted Tweets Camera Strap

It’s been a scorcher here in PA on this fine holiday weekend, so I spent a little time in my nice air-conditioned craft room making a camera strap for my new(ish) Lumix camera.

Quite a bit nicer than the blah strap that came with the camera. Two layers of batting in the middle make it very comfortable to wear. I also made it a bit longer than a traditional strap — I like to wear my camera across my body when it’s not in use.

Mostly, I just fuddled around with 3 1/2″ wide fabric pieces until it looked good to me. For materials, I used some scraps I’d been hanging on to from the purple baby quilt I made earlier this spring, mixed with some stash pieces, and hardware from an old Canon camera strap. My favorite kind of project — quick and free!
