Guest blogger Nic Watson shows us how you can easily and quickly make your own strap at home.
I wanted to buy a Sailor Strap online from America but couldn’t justify paying US $60-$70 to have it shipped over to Australia from the US. So I went to BCF (or Walmart for our US friends) and bought some boating rope and used some I already had to make my own camera strap and hand straps.
All you need are the following items:
- Rope for your strap (personal preference how long) (8mm diameter at least)
- Thin Rope for strapping
- Super glue
- Sewing kit
1. Cut the Rope
2. Glue the ends
3. Sew the Ropes
4. Wrap the Loop
The final result looks pretty amazing and considering the very easy technique used to put it together, anybody can create their own strap.
You can use the same technique for a hand strap.
