Innovative Strap for the Lubitel

Strangely, none of the stores I visited sold straps for my Lubitel, and as it is really necessary for this camera I thought of making myself one.

Making this strap didn’t take me more than 10 or 15 minutes. I needed:

  • Ribbon (I used 2 in order for it to be stronger and more colorful)
  • 2 Rings
  • Thread and needle
  • Matches

First I joined both of the ribbons and sewed them in order to put them through the ring and sewing them again so they don’t fray.

It was a bit difficult for me to sew these ribbons because they kept fraying… they looked a little ugly so it occurred to me to cover them with some crystals, and furthermore, it looked prettier!

Finally I made the other side and it looked like this:

Making straps for the cameras is really easy and it can be very creative. There are many kinds. I hope that you liked this one with the little crystals. You can try with any other kind of beads or decorations.
