I, for the most part, am not crafty. I am TERRIBLE at drawing and cannot cut in a straight line to save my life.
But I had to try this.
A while back, I found a really cute camera strap cover on Etsy. However, if you know me or read this blog at all, you know that I absolutely refuse to pay for something that I can do myself. My grandmother taught me how to sew when I was younger (which was probably the best gift she ever gave me), so I can do some easier sewing projects.
I was in town today for a couple of errands, so I just ran by Hobby Lobby to see if they had any cute fabric. Well lo and behold, their cute fabrics were 30% off! So I spent a grand total of $3.61 on fabric for this!
I found a template here, so I tried it this afternoon!
ISN’T IT CUTE?!?!
I’m just so happy with the way it turned out! All in all, there is at most $2 worth of material in this (since I had a lot of fabric left over – I could probably make 3 more covers with what I have left!), and about an hour of work. That’s compared to paying $20 for something like this on etsy! Good deal or what?
Now I’m off to do one of my other favorite money-saving things – making my grocery list with the weekly grocery store ads!
