Camera Strap Cover SUCCESS!!! And mustard yellow flats.

Remember a few weeks ago when I tried to make a camera strap cover and failed miserably? Well, my sister-in-law Kathy made one and it turned out sooo cute! So, this week I got up the courage and I tried again. And I succeeded! (Thank you, thank you very much, no need to hold your applause) I looked at every tutorial I could find, so, I can't really say what tutorial I used...I just kind of put them all together and made it. I found a SUPER AWESOME site that has 15 camera strap cover tutorials called:


Seriously, check them out. They were SOOOO incredibly helpful! And they had so many cute strap ideas!

So, wanna see what I made, do ya?

Here it is! I'm a little obsessed with navy blue, mustard yellow, brown and cream right now. I blame my sister for that.

HIIIIIIIII, RACHEL! I LOOOOOOVE YOU! Yes, we are twins. (Okay, not really...but everyone thinks we are.) She is the skinny, tan, brown eyed version of me. Who has never said a swear word in her LIFE. She is AMAZING. (And since you're so amazing, I made you one, too, Rach!)

Anyhew....here's a closeup of the detail. You see the nice "diamond" studs? Those are earrings who have lost their other half. I'm so glad I kept them!

And, my new strap will match PERFECTLY with my new mustard yellow flats.

Awww, hello my sweet little shoes!

Well, if you are wanting to make a camera strap, jump on it! If I can do it, I promise YOU can do it.

CUTE SHOES! And I love that pic of you and Rachel. Good job on the camera strap--it looks a little intimidating to make!

Those shoes are the bomb. The last time I saw Rachel she was a tomboy with shor hair. Haha.

Tatum said...

Yay! So glad it worked- it was worth the extra effort, it is ridiculously cute! love the colors! I have a big, fat, nerdy padded camera strap, I don't think there is a pattern in the whole wide blogosphere for that level of geekdom. And hooray for yellow shoes! That's what I'm wearing right now myself, twin!

Hi Natalie it was me that left the message! I would totally love a camera strap, that's so sweet of you to offer. I really can pay too if you want me to. I love lots of colors and flowery things like reds, mustard, brown, green or turquoise but anything you make is so cute!
