DIY . Chain Camera Strap

Normalmente não sou muito de DIY's, adoro ver, mas depois a preguiça apodera-se de mim e acabo por não fazer.
Mas ao ver este DIY no blog" a pair and a spare ", tenho que dizer que fiquei cheia de vontade de ir já comprar uma corrente, cola e tudo o que é preciso para começar a fazer a minha nova corrente para a máquina fotográfica.
O efeito é quase como se estivesse a levar uma carteira ao ombro, e o melhor é que é super simples de fazer.
Eu vou experimentar e vocês?




Usually I'm not much of a DIY girl, I mean, I love to see them, but then my laziness gets the best of me and I never really do them.
But seeing this DIY on " a pair and a spare " blog, I have to say I'm anxious to go buy a chain, glue and whatever I need to start making my new chain camera strap.
The result is almost as if you're carrying a purse on your shoulder, and the best is that it's super easy to do.
I'm going to try it out, what about you?

Lau




You need (precisam):
- 2 m of strong but lightweight bronze chain (you don't want to double the weight of your camera!)
- 2 sliplock buckles (I used the ones that came on my nikon strap)
- 50cm of strong nylon webbing
- E6000 glue
- Scissors





1. Cut the nylon webbing in half.


 2. Slide one end of the nylon webbing through the camera strap holder on the camera.

3. On the outer lower half of the nylon webbing, thread one of the sliplock buckles


4. Fold the chain in half and slide the two loose ends onto the nylon webbing. 

5. Double the nylon webbing over and pass back through the sliplock buckle.

6. Thread the other loose end through the sliplock buckle and reinforce both ends with E6000 glue



7. Press down to dry and feel free to reinforce the glue with some hand stitches through the webbing. Finally, repeat this process for the other end of the strap.
