music crazy || don't look closely

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

A friend of mine sent me an Etsy shop that sells camera strap scarves. They really were adorable, but I about died at the price. $30-60?! My seamstress of a sister informed me that the fabric would cost $4 tops. I got my fabric for $1, and only used half the amount I got.

Sewing through leather is tough. Gosh, okay. So we were able to get through part of it before the needle on the sewing machine bent.
Great.
So I got out a needle and managed to stitch through a couple stitches before that bent.
Super.
I got out a super duper thick needle and began painstakingly pulling it through.
Me: "Never look at this stitching."

P.S. you know the problem with trying to take a photo of your camera strap?....you have to take it off your camera to take the photo. *ahem* so I'll work on that photo soon.

P.P.S. isn't my little sister just adorable?! She just loves music. ;)



have you ever seen those adorable camera straps?
are you 'music crazy?'

  1. Your sister is so cute! Beautiful photos. I love the second one best.
    I've been wanting a scarf camera strap too, but I have the same problem with the price. I'll have to keep dreaming. Sadly, I'm not crafty enough to make one myself!

    1. Thanks, Sophie! <3 <3
      ahhh. Yes. Next time I make one, I'd like to use more of an airy fabric. They aren't too hard..if you solve the problem of the leather. lol. Or get a needle that is meant for leather. :D

    1. Have you ever listened to the Piano Guys? They are awesomeeee! :D
      They add a pretty cool touch to your camera, I think. Next time I'd like to try a lighter fabric in a basic color so it will match outfits. :D :D

  4. Oh my goodness, that second picture of your sister is absolutely adorable! I guess that I am "music crazy" I love music and I'm always singing something, though I'm not the best singer, haha. ;-) Wow, I don't think that I could ever spent that much money on a camera strap scarf, my plain black camera strap works fine with me. ☺️

    1. Thanks so much, Maddy! <3 <3 hahaaa, yes. I enjoy singing along with music. ;) Do you like more lyric music, or music like..the Piano Guys?
      Me either! lol! I thought the same, but it was really cheap and super cool that you can choose your own fabric. :D

  5. Ooh! I looked them up on Etsy! They are genius! There are actually some for about fifteen dollars.. a bit less, sort of? XD
    So did you make it then? :D

    4. :P Maybe I could just sew fabric onto the strap so it would at last have some sort of design, even if it wasn't a scarf. :)

  6. Your little sister IS adorable! And those scarf-camera-straps are really pretty! Good for you for making one yourself. :) I've sewn quilts and stuff, but I don't know if I would do too well sewing through leather. That sounds hard!

    1. Thank you! <3 Oh, I knowww, aren't they?
      I've sewn a quilt when I was younger..my machine is horrible though. It's so old, so it always gives me trouble. I used my sisters machine and it's a lot better. I think you just need an actual needle meant for leather for it to work.. :D

  8. I've seen those Etsy shop scarfs, and nearly choked! Do you think that you could post a type of tutorial on here, that way I might attempt to make one?

    1. lol! Don't choke! Oh, gosh. I should have thought of that before. :P I could have, but I already made it so I couldn't really do photos. To be honest, if I did it again I would do it another way. Like the ones on etsy I would get round hook thingys to slip onto the camera. (where you put the normal camera straps) and use a lighter (non stretch) fabric. I'm sure there are manyyy tutorials out there. But yes, if I did do it again.. I would do it like that. :)
      Sorry if none of that made sense. :P Let me know if you have any more questions! :D
