Step one Cut the printed fabric into two pieces 44x19cm(17!⁄"x7½in) each.
Step two Stitch these right sides (RS) together along one short end. Press this seam open then fold it in half lengthways RS together.
Pin and sew together along the length.
Step three Trace the template to use to cut two strap ends from the blue faux suede.
Step four Open the D-rings, attach a lobster swivel clasp to each one then close them. Step five Turn the fabric tube RS out, then, with the long seams in the centre, press flat. Step six Fold and pin the short ends inwards to the centre to make a pleat.
Step seven Stitch down in a square with a cross through the centre for strength.
Step eight Thread a D-ring /lobster clasp onto each of the camera strap ends.
Step nine Place the sewn pleated fabric on top of the opened strap end and fold the strap back. Clip to hold it in place.
Step ten Turn the strap over so the pleat is at the back and stitch the camera strap ends closed, making sure the fabric is tucked right inside. Stitch slowly and add an extra horizontal line for strength.
