oh you hippie strap


 i think i love you...... made my hippie strap for our new camera and i LOVE it! it turned out pretty awesome i have to say. it was so easy i want to make more of them, maybe for christmas, people will be getting some!
 the hardware we bought from the fabric store and i used some black fabric i had laying around and all i needed to do was just iron the folds for the back, pin it and then sew and that was pretty much it! i love easy sewing projects. plus knowing that i saved about $30 feels really good, hippie camera straps run around $40 or more!
if you make a hippie strap i would love to see it!

yesterday started my 7 day work week :( so i will be a busy little beaver while my lovely co-worker has some much needed family time off. after my 7 day work week tom and i are taking our 3 day anniversary escape, i can't wait!!!

have a great weekend everyone, mourn for me while i slave away :( hehehe

  14. My dad has always had the same strap on his camera, every since I was a baby, I've always thought it was kind of girly, with the hippy floral design. This one reminds me of his vintage one, same color scheme. (although he would never call it vintage, that would make him feel old)

  25. This is great!! I have my father's strap still on the old Nikon he gave me, but it's starting to come apart. Did you do the embroidery yourself?
