Responding to a custom request and the call to create by my very talented good friend Maya, I made not one but four of these camera strap covers.
I learned A LOT from making these. One thing for sure, looks can be deceiving! It's not as easy as I thought! Lots of measurement, padding, tube turning and bulky seams issues. Padded it for comfort and be prepared to face a hard time getting the bulky seams to move on the sewing machine lol. But I really wanted it to work, and as Maya had linked in her blog, there are just endless possibilities with fabric combo when dressing up your camera!
I don't have a photo with these straps attached to the camera coz I only have one camera and obviously using it to snap these photos lol. So these are Lovemelots Camera Strap Covers, I made them in 2 types.
One Main Fabric, Non Reversible, Softly Padded
This type is not reversible but have the comfort of soft padding inside (courtesy of fusible fleece) which is easier on the neck. I put Version 1 (v1) coz I'm sure I can improve on this design one day and come out with v2 :D
REVERSIBLE COMBO v1
Combination of 2 fabrics, Reversible, NO padding, fully lined
This type uses 2 fabric combo, reversible, but not padded (as the padding is too bulky to turn the tube for this design). However there are 2 layers of soft flannel interlining inside the strap covers, making it a little bit more meaty to the touch. The outer fabrics are also fully interfaced for stability.
I'm offering these in the shop, will upload perhaps later today. Products can be custom ordered and I will also add ready to ship items in the shop from time to time.
Honestly, I'm way behind schedule with sewing as things at work plus getting ready for my study leave, are driving me crazy! I'm grateful I managed to complete these last night right into the wee hours. The little miss Hanan was of course like a baby owl stayed up to keep mommy company. Here at 12 midnite, she refused to go to sleep and asked me to snap her photo lol
Before I go, I'd like to say THANK YOU for all the birthday wishes in my giveaway. Some make me chuckle, some make me reflect on me, and most of them are loving, soothing words which I truly appreciate! You gals are the best, 3 more days before the draw, fingers crossed!
Til then, have a great day lovely peeps *hugs*!
