For Christmas this year I really wanted to make James something personalised and after lots of thinking about it I settled on making him a personalised camera strap because he loooooves photography. This is his photography site 😀

I had to take some of the photos on my phone as not to ruin the surprise XD

First thing I did was cut out two pieces of fabric after measuring his strap.

Using a chalk marker I drew his name in a pretty font for the outside and then a special quote from my favorite show (Pushing Daisies) on the inside.

I embroidered it all and tried to make daisies as manly as possible… it’s unsurprisingly quite difficult to make daisies manly XD

Then I overlocked the ends…

Folded the ends over and pinned them together:

And turned it inside out so it’s a big tube…
