You guys!!! It’s day two! Can you believe it?!?! I really can’t. I am SO. EXCITED. about this week still. I can hardly contain myself! I seriously can’t get enough of seeing Rob Lowe in a pink scarf. It’s pretty much the best!
So, today I bring you another repurposed scarf:
The camera is for us crazy bloggers who need to take pictures of all of our projects. Because I made this strap for my main camera, I used my old point-and-shoot to photograph the strap once it was finished. Takes me back to the old blogging days, before the PEN was in my life!
To get started, take out two of the split rings and follow the below instructions:
Not exactly pretty, right? So next you get to pick whether you want to use ribbon or vinyl. I picked vinyl for two reasons: the first is because it happened to match the green on the scarf oh-so-well! The second? You’ll see!
I cut strips of vinyl about 1/8 of an inch thick and used super glue to attach the end to the strap.
Oh so why did I pick the vinyl over the ribbon? Well I made these super cute tassel keychains a little while ago and ended up using one of them to embellish the camera strap a little!
