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.
