I’m always looking to accessorize to compliment my beard, from the hats I wear to…well, that’s pretty much the extent of it. While this DIY project isn’t perhaps something I would personally dangle around my manly neck, I think it’s awesome and would make a great handmade gift for the female photographer in your life.
Photographer, camera bag designer, and semi-pro crocodile wrestler (she’s from Australia…we made assumptions) Emma Anderson recently posted a tutorial on repurposing an old, silk scarf into a stylish and gorgeous camera strap. (Just because I wouldn’t wear it doesn’t mean I can’t like it, right?)
The build is a bit more in-depth than the simpler leather belt camera strap we posted about yesterday, but for those with a little know-how, it could be your perfect weekend project.
You will need
- A silk scarf (or other material)
- A piece of leather
- Leather specific sewing needles for your sewing machine
- Upholstery thread
- 2 x D rings
- 2 x latches/buckles or split rings
- Sharp scissors
- Skills (we added that one)
