I have a vintage camera strap that I bought at a yard sale in Inglewood a couple of years back. I hated paying two dollars for it at the time. The guy having the sale didn't want to dicker with his prices yet nothing was priced. But I liked the strap so I bought it. It has a velvet kind of inner lining, the part that touches your neck, that keeps it from moving around much when I wear it. The lining has torn twice and I have repaired it by sewing fabric on top of it. I also built it another connector from strap to latch when it broke. The lining has since torn in another place and has needed mending again. So Saturday I played around in my sewing room and made it a whole new lining. I love fixing things instead of running out and buying a new one. It just makes more sense and gives it more of a "me" quality and personality.
