I've had my DSLR camera for several months now, and it's always frustrated me how short the neck strap was that came with it. Finally after months of putting off buying a new strap for it, I decided to make one... can't be that hard, right?

So here it is, my new and improved (and plenty long enough) camera strap.
(please disregard the dog hair on my couch... it's a constant battle which I am losing at the moment)




I used the Queen Anne's Lace scarf pattern with a much smaller hook than recommended for the yarn to make it a little smaller and sturdier, and two little clasps that I found in a bag of key chain rings. I would've liked to be able to show it actually attached to the camera, but I couldn't figure out how to take a picture of the camera, with the camera.

How pretty. I love the Queen Anne's lace pattern and it looks great as a strap.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Good thinking - so much prettier than one you could have bought.  It's lovely.
