From the moment I bought my Canon Rebel camera, I knew I wanted to get a fun, new camera strap cover for it. The standard strap cover is nice, but kind of boring. I checked out etsy.com and found some I really liked, I just couldn't see spending $35+ dollars for a new camera strap.

I decided to look online for some tutorials and I found quite a few. The best tutorial I found was on a site Made by Petchy. I recently bought some fabric online and decided tonight I would give it a try. As I was working on the project, a few 4 letter words may have slipped out of my mouth and at one point, I thought for sure I had messed up and it wasn't going to work at all. I decided to keep going and see if I could make it work. Once the sewing was finished, I slipped the cover on and it actually fit!!! I couldn't believe it. Again, it's not perfect and could actually classify as "sloppy", but it will work for now. And for my first project I'm calling it a success. :) Here's what a sample of a standard camera strap (I forgot to take a before picture):
I love it!! :)
