If your camera is starting to look a bit drab, making a DIY Camera Strap for it may be in order. Whether you are only a shutterbug or photography is your main source of income, I am certain that you will love the DIY camera straps we have listed here. And just like other DIY lists I have written here, most of these projects are very easy. Some need sewing but trust me, you can make these in under an hour.

2 Slipcover with Pockets

Slipcover with PocketsNow you don't you have to replace your old camera strap altogether to amp up your photography gear's cuteness factor. You can also just make a slipcover for the strap that you have now. This particular tutorial is fantastic because it comes with pockets for your lens caps.

4 Overalls
