These past few days have been non stop shopping. Getting ready for Sophia's 4th birthday has been both exciting and exhausting. On a recent trip to Hobby Lobby on a hunt for party supplies, I browsed the fabric section and fell in love with this bright pattern. I instantly remembered that I had been wanting a new strap for my camera so I purchased half a yard and got to work. My first plan was to sew it but I had run out of thread and being the impatient person that I am I decided to just glue it. 

Supplies needed
-hot glue-scissors 
What to do
Cut your fabric to size of strap (I got mine years ago from eBay for $2, similar here)
Iron all four sides
and just Glue
I used pins to help hold the fabric down

  7. Thanks for this great post , how easy we can turn boring old things into something new ! All it needs is an idea ! Looks easy to make , will try soon . How lovely ,it could be done to a belt aswell :) if you have to shorten a skirt or so and could use the 'left over fabric' for this , to match the outfit.
