DIY: Chain Bag Camera Strap

Any photographer would agree, the first step to taking great photos is to have your camera. No doy, right? But that’s often the step we miss out on most – often because we don’t want to carry the thing around. So we made ours into something we DID want to carry around by adding a classic chain bag strap.
Read on for the simple how-to…

First, you’ll need a camera and purse with a removable chain.

HOW-TO: Remove the chain from your bag. Use the clasps to connect the chain to the strap holders. Done. If the clips are too large, you may need to invest 20 cents or so on some strong split key rings. Connect those to the camera, then clasp on the chain.

Voila! The perfect holiday party accessory.
