Welcome to Day 23! You can find the other 31 Days posts here.
If you have anybody on your list with a digital camera that has a strap, a personalized strap cover would be a great gift! I made one last year for myself.
Finding My Feet has a great tutorial for a ruffled camera strap with a lens cap pocket.
How cute is that! This tutorial is for any camera strap so it's great to follow if you are making a gift and don't have the strap to measure.
Cluck.Cluck.Sew. posted a tutorial over at Make It Do for this next camera strap.
This strap cover doesn't have a ruffle so it could be used for a guy or a girl that isn't a big ruffle fan (although I don't know why anyone wouldn't be!). It does include batting which in my opinion isn't completely necessary (especially if you don't have it). Mine was made with the batting but I don't think it's that uncomfortable to have to have it. Your choice. :)
If you or the gift recipient doesn't have a SLR you can always make a strap for a point and shoot camera. I made a couple last year when I made my strap cover. (Sorry for the terrible picture!)
You can find the tutorial over at A Pretty Cool Life. It's very simple and takes less than 30 minutes to make one!
Have any of you made a camera strap before?
