Complete your camera kit with a camera strap:
A good camera strap is an essential part of every camera kit. When you’re taking your favourite camera everywhere with you to capture your most precious memories, you need a sturdy camera strap that you can rely on, and that will allow you to whip out your sensitive and expensive camera at a moment’s notice without being afraid of damaging it.
The knots used in this keychain are the larks head knot, square knot, and the wrapping knot. They’re all pretty easy, although the diagonal double half hitch can take a little practice to get just right. This is a great way to practice it!
Use the Larks Head Knot to attach the 1100cm to the D-ring.

Step 6: Cut the remaining cords
Put it on the D ring
Step 7: Put on the glue and clamp it firmly
Step 8: After a few minute, take off the sealing clip and do a wrapping knot on it.
Take a 30 cm cord and fold one end with about 6cm of cord with the loop lined up.
Hold the loop cord along with the project with and start project ends and start wrapping with the longer side of the cord. Wrap from top down, leaving a short cord end.
Pull the cord that is on the top of the project and as you pull, the loop end will get smaller. Pull the wrapped cord end for a clean finish. Hide the knot inside instead of pull it all out.
