Before and After

I rarely use the strap that came with my camera. The reason for this is because I mainly use my camera for taking photos of my artwork right here at home, so no need to leash the camera to my body. But recently I took the camera on an adventure and so I used the strap. I found that after wearing it for a while it started to become quite uncomfortable around the back of my neck. I'm not sure if it's the material of the strap that I was uncomfortable with or the weight of the camera pulling on it or both. Whichever it was, I decided to change the strap to something homemade. I am hoping it will be more comfortable and it's definitely much more attractive.

I searched online for a camera strap tutorial and found many that were just a strap cover. I didn't want to do a cover, I wanted to totally replace the strap that was there. I found just the tutorial <click here>.

Here's my latest sketchbook doodle that I finished recently. I always seem to make these a little too large for the page.  I should try and make the next one smaller.


  1. Very Cool Terri!!! I would love to play with that doodle!!!!

  2. Nice camera strap Terri! And definitely more attractive than the original...I'm sure it'll be more comfortable too.

    Love the Mandela sketch. Funny, I tend to do my sketches too small, and then when I get one I want to use in a quilt, I usually to have to add more detail to it because the details get lost when it gets enlarged too much.

  3. I like what you did with the strap. Prettier and more comfortable.

  4. Your strap turned out beautifully! Thanks for linking to my tutorial. :)

  5. now that's much nicer way to carry your camera around!

  6. I love the doodle- it is actually unbelievable that you could do something so precise freehand.

  7. Much nicer camera strap! Very classy and cool! Nice zentangle too!
