Make It Monday – Necktie Camera Strap Cover

1 Comment

So I’ve been planning on making my own camera strap cover for ages after seeing this easy DIY on Pinterest. I probably still will, but I managed to come up with a different strap cover idea all on my own!

I love vintage ties & I have quite a few of them. So I decided to try making a camera strap cover out of one. It worked really well & I love it! It was pretty easy to do as well.

I started with a vintage tie. You need to make sure that the tie is wide enough to accommodate your camera strap. I measured the length of the strap on the tie itself & cut it, leaving enough room for a small hem.

Then I hemmed the cut end by hand & added a bit of fray-stop. I threaded it through the strap & reattached it to the camera. The threaded end seems to stay in place without help. I added a vintage tie pin to the wide end of the tie.

I love the outcome. I plan to make more – I need to go through my ties & find one that is still wide enough for the strap, but that is a little less wide at the end. I really do love this idea though – super fun.

An easy DIY with minimal sewing. What DIY projects are you working on lately?
