I’m sure I’ve mentioned that I’m on another round of Ro-Accutane. It’s made my skin very dry and around my neck it’s super sensitive and the slightest discomfort soon turns into burning.
The camera strap on my DSLR has rubber grippy things on one side and the other is hard woven stuff that also burns, so after suffering a whole day of it, I came home and looked at padded camera straps on etsy. Have you seen how expensive they are?! Yikes!
So I made myself this one:
And proudly showed it to Buzz, who was all like, “Oh Wow, that’s awesome!”, then immediately: “Can you make one for me?”
So I took pics this time around (comfortably!) – it’s black Moda Marble so a bit hard to see, but I assure you the instructions are so simple my kid could make one.
1. Measure the length of your strap and add 1″ (for Seam Allowance).
Measure the width of the strap, multiply by 2, and add 1.25″ for Seam Allowance (So if it’s 2″ wide, you’ll need the pieces to be 5.25″ wide.)
2. Cut two pieces of fabric using the measurements you’ve just calculated (mine was about 25″ long by 6.25″ wide.
Cut ONE piece of fusible batting, but you’ll need to trim off about 1/2″ off of each side – if you want, you can wait a bit and cut it to your exact needs in a minute.
3. Take your 2 pieces of fabric RST and sew down the long sides, just shy of 1/2″ Seam Allowance:
