Maybe a year or two ago, i saw a photo of a scarf camera strap that i think was on Pinterest.  I kind of put it in the back of my mind for a while.  Then walking through the dollar store a couple of weeks ago, I saw that they had long scarves.  I grabbed one.  After all, it was only a buck.  And actually, I had to cut it in half to be the right length, so I can get two out of one.

The black ends are actually made from material I cut from a thrift store skirt that I had purchased for $1 a while back and just had it in my stash.  I am not counting out how many of these I can get out of the skirt! 

I had to pick up the hardware, black chain maille rings and heavy-duty black thread from the craft store.  Was able to use coupons on two of those, because of a second trip, so not so bad.  Because my camera strap bars were so narrow, I put two rings on each end to handle the clip.  I could probably get away with one, but I am not taking a chance on my camera taking a dive.  Same reasoning behind the heavy-duty thread vs a thin thread.

I used a quick dry fabric suitable glue on each end of the scarf gluing each fold over until the ends were narrow enough.  I hand-sewed the hardware into each black end and then glued the black ends onto each end of the strap.  That would've probably been strong enough, but again no chances.  I still hand-sewed each round closed catching some scarf in each.  I know it isn't the prettiest sewing job, but I am okay with it. It was difficult to get through the layers of glue.

I think it could also work for a lightweight purse strap for something different.
