Did you know that Doodlebug creates designs for FABRIC too?
We license our fun designs through Riley Blake. And we know many of you love our papers, but wouldn't you love to create with the same darling prints in fabric. Just think you could coordinate your outfit with your scrapbook layout (just kidding).
Today we thought we'd share a fun project that Sherry Cartwright created using the fun Classic fabric prints.
Making the cover was super simple. Cut fabric about an inch longer than the shoulder strap [usually the nylon portion with the camera manufacturer logo]. Next you want your fabric to wrap around the width of the tube with about a half-inch to spare. Simply hem the shorter side, then with fabric folded in half lengthwise, right sides of fabric facing, pin and sew to create tube cover. Thread your camera strap through the tube and viola!
It make it look a whole lot better, but I still wanted something cuter.
So, I made a quick flower.
Cut about a foot length of fabric, about two inches wide. Straight stitch in the longest length on your machine settings, or hand stitch loosely, along one edge. Pull top string to gather and knot each end to hold gather.
I used hot glue to adhere to a circle of black felt, acting as the base.
Cut another piece of fabric in a smaller width and repeat the same process for a smaller flower. Glue over the larger flower.
Layer yellow button over black button and attach to center with doodle twine. Once. Then, string a rubber band or elastic cord through another button for the back, making sure to knot. Stitch it on the black felt circle.
This loop will allow the flower to be attached to the strap when I’m using the camera, but will also allow my husband to remove it when he is using the camera.
I can’t wait to take my camera out for a whirl in style!
