About 6 years ago my mom sent me a bag of strange looking crochet hooks that on first glance I thought were knitting needles. Having no clue what they were for I put them away - way, way, way back in my closet. I learned what they were really for about a year ago and since then I have had "Learn To Tunisian Crochet" on my list of new techniques to learn.
First thing I did was watch a couple YouTube videos on Tunisian crochet and then I bought the book Tunisian Crochet: The Look of Knitting with the East of Crocheting, by Sharon Hernes Silverman. After having the book sit on my shelf for a couple month I finally got motivated to give it a shot.
Using the basic Tunisian simple stitch, also known as the Afghan stitch, I made myself a camera strap cover. With some trial and error I found the right width to fit my strap.

Understanding of Tunisian Simple Stitch
Gauge: 6 stitches per inch
- Create a foundation row of 20 stitches - I would recommend testing the width after a couple of rows to make sure it fits your specific strap
- Work TSS for the entire length of strap
- Turn work with right sides facing each other
- I used a crocheted slip stitch to seam the edge
- Turn half your strap inside out and work camera strap into cover
- Unfold strap and pull the second half through
