This no-sew camera strap project was crafted by Whitney Lenox from the blog Whit B Nimble.

Lenox: “I love the challenge of reusing second-hand items, so I was excited to put a vintage bed sheet I had lying around, to use. In an effort to keep things simple, I used only knots and braids in this comfy, no-sew, upcycled linen strap. I am currently on a road trip, so this is proof that simple, resourceful DIY can happen anywhere!”
