Camera Scarf

Summer memories are coming to a close and the beginning of another school year is quickly approaching. If you’re anything like me, you want lots of photos of your child’s first day of school; new outfit, back pack and lunch box, walking to the bus stop, meeting the teacher, and the list goes o

n. A camera strap gives you ease knowing your camera is ready whenever a photo op makes itself available. And, who doesn’t want to be trendy while catching all those photographic memories? Add the perfect scarf to match your personality!






2 Split rings

2 Chain closures


Sewing machine or needle and thread

Scrap of leather, pen


Step 1: Draw the same shape on the leather with a pen as found in the “Step One” photo below. Make sure the smallest point at the fold fits through the split ring. You’ll be folding it over, so mirror one side to the other and trace it.

Step 2: Cut the leather on the folded line.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 and 2 to create another leather piece (a total of 2).

Step 4: Connect the chain closure to the split ring.

Step 5: Slide the ring to the middle section of the leather.

Step 6: Fold the end of the scarf in an accordion fold, small enough so that it fits into the leather.

Step 7: Stick the leather to the scarf in place.

Step 8: With your sewing machine, stitch around the edge of the leather (as indicated in the picture)

Make sure you have a special needle that works for leather. Otherwise, hand stitch it!
