FO Friday! Guitar strap

Last project from Christmas! This was a present for my uncle, who had recently taken up guitar. I’d never done anything like this before, so it was a bit of an experiment for me.

The pattern called for you to put studs in every so often, but that seemed a bit TOO punk rock for my uncle, so instead I did a contrasting color pop. LOTS of ends to weave in, boo.

The ends are crocheted separately and sewed on once the backing is sewed on.

Speaking of backing… I hand sewed this onto the back. It took a really long time, but it was totally worth it. Looks so much better!

My main worry is that I just blindly followed the instructions, not really knowing if it was going to make a long enough strap for an adult male. My uncle assures me that my aunt also plays sometimes, so if it didn’t fit him, it would fit her. Woo!

  1. Do you have the pattern for this? It is no longer available on Ravelry and I really want to make it for my step dad for his birthday.
