A small amount of fabric in your favorite house colors.
Guitar strap hardware (leather or nylon; or an inexpensive strap to plunder parts from)
Ironing board, or flat heat-resistant surface
2 inches wide x 53.5 inches long (5.08 cm wide x 135.89 cm long)
Cut your fabric as follows:
- Ten - 4.5 inch x 5 inch (11.43 cm x 12.70 cm) of the main color (MC)
- Nine - 1 inch x 5 inch (2.54 cm x 12.70 cm) of MC
- Eighteen - 1 inch x 5 inch (2.54 cm x 12.70 cm) of the contrast color (CC)
sewing the smaller pieces together, with Â¼ inch (0.64 cm) seams, in a
(CC, MC, CC) pattern, creating swatches of smaller stripes.
Press the seams away from your lighter color so that they do not show through.
Snip the ends of the threads out of your way.
Trim about Â¼ inch (0.64 cm) from the seam.
Turn right-side out and press.
Note: If your stripes don't match up perfectly at the seam, you may
choose to press it so that the seam lays on the inside or "wrong side"
of the strap so that each edge of the strap then looks neat.
Turn in the open ends of strap and sew shut close to the edge.
Sew strap end to the inside of strap as shown.
