DIY Camera Strap Cover

Hello Lolly Jane Readers! We are Elizabeth and Elizabeth from over at Simple Simon and Company and today we are excited to share a tutorial showing how to make your own camera strap cover.

Camera Strap Cover Title

If you are new to sewing then this is a great project to try and if you are an experienced seamstress then it makes for a quick afternoon sew.

Here’s what you will need to make these camera strap covers:

  • 1 piece of fusible fleece cut 22″ by 5″
  • 5 squares of random fabric cut at 5″ by 5″
  • Your sewing machine, thread, and a pair of scissors


And here are the instructions for how to make it:

Step #1. Sew your five squares right sides together using a 1/4 inch seam allowance in one long line (as shown in the picture below. Press.

 Step #2. Center your fusible fleece on the wrong side of your newly sewn fabric strip. (You should have about 1/2″ of fabric on the top and bottom of your strip that will not be covered by the fusible fleece.) Iron the fusible fleece to the fabric.

Step #3. Quit lines 1/2′ apart vertically down the length of your fabric strip (as shown in the picture below).

Camera Strap Finished

NOTE: Today over at Simple Simon and Company we have this same camera strap made but we used a different detail at the end. Instead of quilting we added pom poms! So if you would like to check that tutorial out pop on over and we will show you how!

Super cute, girls! I am dying to snag the new white Canon DSLR and this pattern would be lovely paired with it! Check out more from our fave set of Elizabeths!

  1. Thanks so much for this tutorial. I chose to use the one fabric so for anyone else who wants to go this way you only need a 23x5inch piece of fabric. It’s much more comfortable wearing era for long periods of time and looks nicer than the standard issue canon-black too ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Thanks for the tutorial! I was about to buy a camera strap, I don’t know why the thought never occurred to me to make one! I just found your blog through Instagram and I’m loving it. ๐Ÿ™‚
