Nancy Drew camera strap cover

The neck strap that came with the camera I got for Christmas has got to be one of the most uncomfortable things ever -- and I wasn't even hot or sunburned!  Tromping through the desert, which we all know is in my near future, is going to require something quilted. And cute, because I'm a quilter and we don't make ugly things on purpose.

I thought I was going to do something pieced, then I took a look at that yardage I bought at Greenbaum's a couple of weeks ago. It's got cute little pictures on it, which is just perfect for a camera strap. And it's Nancy Drew!

In hindsight, I wish I'd looked at some tutorials before I made this one. I didn't realize that some camera straps come with pockets for the lens cover. I might need to make myself a second camera strap. Anyone want this one if/when I do?

Only six more sleeps 'til the Nancy Drew blog hop starts.... I can't wait to show off my new project! If you're getting impatient too, you might want to check out Nancy's Mysterious Quilt, or my Nancy Drew Kindle sleeve, or the baby quilt.

I'm linking this post to Finish it Up Friday, Can I get a Whoop Whoop?, Freedom Friday,  Link a Finish Friday.

Sure, I'd be happy to own a camera strap that you made. It would be handy since I still have that on my want to make some day list and there never seems to be enough days in the week, or hours in the day for that matter. Jane

I think it is very nice; we are often more critical of our own flaws I think. I am looking forward to the Nancy drew blog hop too, I mean Is it the one from Sew We Quilt? Don't you just love Blog hops?!
