DIY Curtain-Tie Camera Straps


I recently got sick of my camera strap in it's boring ugliness.  I had tried to black out the "Nikon" on it with permanent marker, but just succeeded in getting black ink everywhere.  So I decided to take matters into my own hands and make my own!

You'll need:
Long curtain ties - I got these from Spotlight
Camera strap attachments - I bought some cheap camera straps off eBay for $1 and hacked these off
Strong glue eg. epoxy
Scissors, needle & thread, glue

Chop those straps to size.

Loop the end over, trapping the loop from the curtain tie.  Stitch it down, and then you can add some extra glue to make sure it is sturdy.  Wouldn't want your cam-cam to take a tumble!  Use the pegs to put pressure on the glue, and leave to dry overnight.

Attach to your camera and off you go!
