New camera, means new project

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I wanted to share a little DIY craft that I did with changing the strap of my new camera. Everyone has probably seen these kind of tutorials on the web lately, but  I wanted to share what steps and what my turned out looking like.

First I took 2 pieces of leather like fabric that I bought from Hobby Lobby, cutting them into 2 “D” shapes ( traced D ring )

I then took my scarf, which I just purchase one from Stein Mart for under 20 dollars, but you can use whatever you want. I had to trim the bottom of it to make it the length I wanted ( again personal preference ).

I found the most challenging part of it was gathering the ends of the scarf and making it fit in-between the pieces of leather and the D ring. What i decided to do so to tie the bottom almost to the bottom with string to make it easier to fit. I used a hot glue gun and a few stitches to secure it all together.

This is how it turned out, Now its ready to use and Im excited to start using my new camera!
