    I
    had some elephant fabric leftover from my framed fabric art DIY, and I’ve been meaning to use it to cover up my generic Canon camera strap for awhile. It couldn’t have been easier. The whole process took about 10 minutes. Below, the details!

    Measure the length and width of your camera strap and mark underside of fabric with a pencil. Double the width (for front and back). Add 1″ onto each side of the overall measurement to fold back so you don’t have any rough fabric edges showing.

    Cut out the piece of fabric. Fold back the ends and glue them down to the fabric to create a clean edge.

    Once that edge is secure, add more glue down the middle of the strap and fold the edge over to meet in the middle. This folding reminds me of how to wrap a present with folded, clean edges.

    Keep smoothing down the fabric, especially at all the edges. Add dots of glue wherever an edge might be lifting. DIY complete!
