What can you make with a jelly roll? Project five. Camera strap cover.

Did you think I was out of jelly roll strips? I'm not!! There are still plenty left. After today's project you'll have about 14 strips left, and if you're wondering: we've used 26 so far, including today's project.
For our camera strap, which is probably the easiest thing you will ever make, choose two strips of fabric. Again I'm using Reunion Jelly Roll Sweetwater for Moda, still working with the same roll.

Measure your camera strap, the part I wanted to cover for mine was 24 1/2" so I cut a piece off each strip that was 25 1/2".

Iron an sew both ends of both strips, wrong sides together, making sure when it's ironed it will be as long as you'd like your strap.

Take the two strips, right sides together and stitch down both sides. Turn your tube right side out, iron and put it on your camera strap. Easy peasy. If you're a ruffle kinda gal, which I am not, you can add a ruffle using another strip, or maybe sewing your two remaining pieces together to make a multi-colored ruffle.
I'm going to continue to work with Reunion for this series, but remember you can find a bunch of different jelly rolls here. And if you're not too keen on using your jelly roll for all these little projects, Fat Quarter Shop also sells Jelly Roll Patterns.

Other projects in this series can be found here.
