Camera Strap Cover
We had two snow days in a row here in Colorado, but it was for cold rather than snow. The windchill was -14 yesterday! I also have had a cold the last two days-really sore throat and a fever. I did manage to finish up this camera strap that I had been wanting to make for a long time!
I love that this camera strap has a pocket built into the strap for your lens cover. I am so bad about taking mine off and setting it down somewhere that I don't remember later on.
This is my new camera that I bought back in August, a Nikon D5000. We had purchased tickets to go to an outdoor music festival, but we then decided not to go because I wasn't sure it would be the best environment for a year old. So we sold the tickets, and I got a new camera instead for my birthday, several months later. I love it, and it was a great choice to make not going to the show (which would have been tremendous fun).
My friend Vanessa has a great tutorial over on her blog LBG studio for the strap cover, along with numerous other tutorials. We actually went to high school together, but I didn't sew then. I think she might have, but we definitely never talked about it. I wish we lived closer now because it would be great to have an old friend as a sewing buddy now! Go check out her blog if you haven't been by before!
