Camera-related sewing tutorials

Photography fans, here are a few project ideas for you:

If you're ambitious, make your own camera strap at Ikat Bag.
If you're less ambitious or have fickle tendencies, just sew your camera strap a slip cover at Design Sponge.
Make a small camera case at Sew Mad.
Sew a tote bag with a camera graphic like this project from Stitch Idées magazine via Fototiller. No online tutorial, but you can use the photo to inspire your own.

That camera tote bag is seriously cute, but I'm afraid that it shouts "Steal me - I've got a camera inside!"

I do love the camera straps, tho. I've been meaning to make one to replace the scratchy nylon one that came with my camera.

I'll add that the Sew Liberated book has a pretty cool camera tote that I've been meaning to try. So far I've been wrapping up my fancy new camera in a sweatshirt - not good.

Those straps are awesome, thanks for posting! Too bad I see them right after I had my trip and my camera was looking kind of sad with a makeshift strap... I'm ambitious all right!

I agree with the camera bag being seriously cute. Love that idea.

I've seen fabulous camera bags that mix fashion and function over at www.kellymoorebag.com. These would go great with those new camera straps!

Since I'm terrible with anything that involves needle and thread, I looked around for some cute camera straps I could buy. I like a lot of the ones on http://phatstraps.com/
