Camera Scarf Strap DIY

Camera Strap Tutorial

I love to take photos. Either it’s my kids or landscapes I love it. There is just something about picking a scene that fits that rectangle or capturing a moment in time. It is all about keeping memories alive.

There are a lot of crafty projects for all photography lovers but the one I love the most is making camera straps. It is particularly useful for Fall now that the colder weather has arrived.  Here it is a quick tutorial on how to make them!

Step 1- Cut your scarf to a length of about 40 inches.

Step 2- Insert the key rings onto both scarf edges.

Step 3- Fold the edge twice (so the raw edge is enclosed) around the key ring. Stitch.

This is how it should look now:

Step 4- Connect the clasps.

You’re done!

You can either join the scarf strap to the camera by the clasps or by the key rings. (Tip: Since you will have metal on metal now make sure to check the camera’s strap attachments frequently, just in case.)

This project takes about 10 minutes! You can also use thrifted belts or purse straps. It is perfect as a last  minute gift!
