They'll be adjustable and I'm hoping to offer an array of them in prints not usually seen for banjos. I finally got the notions I needed to start making them,and I'm excited. Naturally the first one will be for me to test out & see how I like it. If there's a fabric print or design you've never seen on a banjo strap but wish were available,what would you choose as far as a theme? Celestial? Christian? Paisley? Holiday? Celtic? Angels?
Would love to have your imput.

I'm sort of missing a good strap for light banjos. I'm in utter love with my Lakota Leathers cradle strap for my heavy BG banjo, but I haven't found one which makes my RK-25 OB rest and not feel flimsy. Would need something to stabilize it a bit when hanging. Maybe a challenge you'd be up to?

right now I just want to be sure I make a basic,strong,high quality strap. Perhaps down the road? Who made your banjo? And stabilize in what way?

For the heavy bluegrass banjos, a cradle strap is a must imho. To protect your investment.
I bought a Lakota leather cradle strap but had to buy a slip on padded accessory because the strap still cut thru my shoulder.

I use only cradle straps. Maybe a paracord strap??? Theirs a bazillion colors now a days. I'm just not patient enough to braid one myself.
Paracord can be stiff maybe a thick pad from your print stuff.
Just some ideas.

the ones I'll be making won't be cradle straps.......I'm mainly asking for preferences on color or print designs for the pattern I have here.....I do appreciate the input :-) and perhaps down the road I'll make different types of banjo straps. For now I'm making basic straps and see how that goes.
