What are you most proud of? Figuring out how to make my own tabs and finally finding a source for the 2 inch slider (not easy to find)- the only other option was to buy a cheap guitar strap, and use the tabs and hardware.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Choose your fabric carefully since the finished strap is only 2 inches wide -- you don't want to lose a cute design!

Is there a pattern or a tutorial for this? I would love to make one for my Dad!

I'm thinking of making a kit with everything but the fabric -- it would include a tutorial, the 2" hardware which is difficult to find, and the vinyl tabs which can be challenging, and the stabilizer. I think the the user would prefer to choose their own fabric. I'd appreciate your opinion on that idea.

Hi! I'm a screaming Mimi too! :) My granddaughter has a guitar and I would love to make her a strap for it. I think a kit would be awesome, or even just instructions and a list of what is needed.

Hi Other Mimi...since posting the project, I've created a tutorial that is available in my Craftsly pattern store. I also have pre made tabs, and the necessary plastic hardware available for purchase in my Etsy store....http://www.Etsy.com/shop/SewMimiDesigns.
