Sequinned Camera Strap

I recently got a new Canon Eos M Compact System slr style camera for my birthday and have been teaching myself how to use all the different functions and features. It's a great size to take everywhere and so easy to use.
It came complete with a sturdy Canon strap which to most people would be perfect, but it just wasn't doing it for me and my 'magpie' eye for detail!

I took at trip to John Lewis haberdashery section and purchased some silver sequined tape.

 Attached the tape to the thick strap


Then very carefully sewed the tape to the strap

Thus creating my own homemade sequined camera strap! I love it and am really pleased with the final results. It's only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish, but you just need to set aside time to fully appreciate what you can achieve. My husband and I have now turned Wednedays into 'Creative Wednesdays' where we read, talk, make and do things with no tv all night! It's really good fun!
