Hey - I've searched guitar strap and haven't found much -  a couple refs, but no pix.  Can anyone point me in the right direction, give ideas or sites for inspiration?  Crochet especially interests...  Thanks. 

P.S.  Husband bought brand new guitar today  - his new hobby!

Knitty has the pattern for the knitted one.  It's a bit girly, but I bet it could be re-vamped.  No idea if this is anything close to what you're looking for, but here you go. Smiley

My husband has one that is made out of a large hemp twine woven like machreme (how do you spell that??)  It's really cool. Unfortunately I don't know how to make it. He paid a friend of ours to make it!  If you're interested I can take photos! 
Good Luck
...ps...we're going to buy my hubby a new guitar tomorrow...wonder if he'll want a new strap too?

Here ya go...he was playing it today after we had no luck at Guitar Center  Sad  Good thing he can get a new guitar for the same price online!



Sorry the photos are kinda' big, but hey...I guess you can see the detail better then.  Maybe you can figure out the weave and remake it!

ALSO...when we were at Guitar Center I saw some other ones that were made in almost the same way you would make a pet collar (tube of fabric, stiched on either edge and then a sliding adjuster for length). Just an idea, if you can understand that!

Good Luck!

Funny...now that I took the photos and had my husband model...he now wants a new strap for his new guitar!  SO...I made him one out of left over batik fabric and a little polar fleece for padding last night. Maybe photos later!

Let us know how yours turns out!

Please send photos as I have not done one yet!! :>  BrandNewDay, I just clicked on your name because I liked your pic and your name(I've used newday as a password before :> ).  I am up here in MI and am a bit envious of your SW Florida status!!  My brother lives in Fort Myer...Thanks again for the encouragement and the ideas.

When i think of a thick strap like that, what comes to mind is a seatbelt. maybe check an auto salvage yard to purchase a length of it dress it up a bit??
