This past Saturday, after working a short shift at the Center Grove Apple Orchard, I headed to the farm to get some sewing done. I was 'hired' to make a camera strap and apron. In addition, I (mom included) made a camera strap for Gina......well, technically Jay, since he's the photographer of the family.
Jay's camera strap cover.
Girly Camera Strap Cover.
While mom was finishing up on some of the crazy sewing on the apron, I started playing with scraps of material from the 'girly' camera strap.
Here's what I came up with.
I know those rosette things aren't that new or amazing, but I have never made them before.
And man, I struggled with them! I wasn't sure what I was doing, but it was difficult holding it together while sewing it together. Then trying to sew them to the strap was another task on its own!
But, here's the new final result.
If you notice on this one, the left side has a small patch of material that is different from the rest. That is a lens cap pocket that is on the inside of the strap. Because many of the DSLR camera's don't have anything to connect the lens cap to the camera when in use, this little pocket is a great help. There is a little pocket on Jay's cover as well, but it just blends in with the material.
I hope to make some more of these sometime...but it might be a little while before I get a chance to get back to the farm. So if you want one, let me know. I'll put you on my wait list. :)
