This one's hot off the hooks!
I've been meaning to make a guitar strap for my acoustic guitar for a while now. I was strutting down the isles of Micheal's Crafts when, BAM! Clearance rack! I picked up a small skein of novelty yarn for 2 smackaroo's, and was delighted. At home, I had some calm yellow and soothing pink yarn just waiting to be paired up with this gorgeous yarn. And so, a guitar strap was made! In just a few hours, here it is! I litterally just weaved in my ends!



The colors remind me so much of like, lemonade. And summer.
*tears*


on my guitar. think she likes it?


close up of the lufferly colors blended together in summery lemonadey goodness.

The end-peg thing is a quickie and a cheapie--my Guitar Center did mine while I waited!

Just a thought, if you're going to use this as weight-bearing a lot, you may want to back the ends with something stiffer--maybe a felt or pleather or something.

I love it! I love how you matched up the more traditional yarn with the fluffy stuff--it's really great. And the colors of course are excellent!

thanks everyone!

yeah, I am probably going to be backing it with a fabric I have around. But since it is double-yarned, it is pretty sturdy.

Oh, I believe you! I'd be more worried about it stretching a lot and the hole becoming too big than it actually breaking Smiley
