scrapdown project

Yesterday I realized that trying to carry my camera around the rummage sale with my arms were loaded was probably going to end badly. Nevermind chasing boys at cookouts and holiday brunches.
Enter all those scraps from the big SCRAPDOWN.
I picked some of my favourites, ( I'm a virgo and already had them separated by colour.) pieced them up quick, backed them with a vintage sheet and ta-da!

New camera strap!

camera strap 2

Easy to tie on, ( and off for husbands) and long enough to go across my body not just around my neck. Who wants to have a weight on their neck all day anyway?
Now, I'm ready for a holiday weekend.

Also, have you heard of the 912 project? Interesting. Check it out.

Do you have a picture of how this looks on? I've been into making myself a camera strap, and like the idea of a nice long one.
