It was time for a cute camera strap....I bought two pieces of fabric and found an accent piece I liked.
I measured the width of my strap, but made it about 1/2 inch too long so I could trim both sides 1/4 inch to hide the raw end. I then sewed the two pieces together. At this point I sewed the flower onto one side. I used this tutorial in order to make the fabric flower.
I then measured how much need to be folded in to fit around the straw and I folded the two raw sides inward, and then sewed down the length so it is a sleeve with both ends open so I can slip it on and off my strap.
Surely a friend this old deserved a little pampering after all these years.
