Announcement    Welcome, strummers, thanks for visiting my shop! FREE UKULELE PIN when you purchase one or more ukulele strap! Various designs available while they last!

I've just returned from the State of Maine Shop Hop, purchasing fabric throughout the state of Maine! New strap designs will be added daily to my shop as I sew and quilt using this beautiful fabric. Hope you find something you like!

My quilted ukulele straps are individually sewn, vegan leather tabs are hand cut, with choice of cording or strap adapter for attaching to headstock. I offer the over-the-shoulder and j-hook style straps for all size ukuleles, banjos, F-style mandolins and dulcimers. For those unfamiliar with "vegan leather", it is a combination of fabric and vinyl, extremely durable, lasting for years!! Does not squeak against your uke as "real" leather tends to and is cruelty free!!

My husband crafts beautiful kazoos from various domestic and exotic woods. There's always a ukulele song that needs that kazoo instrumental!

Need a raffle gift for your strum group? Birthday gift for a fellow strummer? There are lots of fun designs to choose from for any occasion and, of course, one to match your ukulele or personality!

Have a favorite hobby? Want a unique strap made just for you?? Maybe a new pocketbook strap to brighten up an old bag? I can search out practically any fabric with a theme you love! Leave me a message and I'll create your one-of-a-kind design!

NEED A BUTTON?? Choose silver, black or gold so you can attach your strap and start strumming!

Be sure to FAVORITE my shop so you are notified when new designs are added!

Stay well, my friends, and happy strumming!!

About QuiltsandUkuleles

Sales 3,794
On Etsy since 2018
Video summary: Here I am playing "All of Me" while taking a break from sewing.

I sew and I strum, best of both worlds!

I’ve sewn my whole life—my own clothes, my children’s clothes and then discovered quilting. Soon after I was gifted a ukulele by my husband and a whole new world opened up!

I played guitar and piano, but the ukulele introduced me to a community I never knew existed. Strummers of all levels, coming together, playing songs, laughing, enjoying each other’s company. As IZ sang, ‘what a wonderful world’!

I reached a level where I began to teach ukulele classes and perform at fundraisers, farmers markets, festivals and charities with fellow strummers.

Then I made my own uke strap, then another, then another and here I am, a year later, with over 3,000 uke straps sold all over the world!

I’m so humbled that strummers like my straps. I enjoy the process of finding beautiful material and creating a uke strap.

My husband, Steve, joined in the fun by creating beautiful wooden kazoos.

Thanks to all who have purchased a strap or a kazoo. We are enjoying creating and making music. Peace to all, Nancy & Steve

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

My straps are made with vegan leather ends which can be tossed into the washing machine, cool temperature, and dryer. You may want to tie up cording so it doesn’t get tangled or tear the end tab.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have your own material, I can create a custom strap. Send me a message and we can work out the details.

What size ukulele does your strap fit?

My straps fit all ukulele sizes, soprano to baritone, and banjoleles.

What materials are used for your straps?

My straps are made with 100% cotton, with a light padding for soft comfort with quilted detailing to finish. The beauty of the fabric print design is on both sides of strap unlike other straps made with webbing. Vegan leather tabs are sturdy, durable and machine washable.

What is Vegan Leather?

'Vegan' leather and 'faux' leather are the same thing – essentially a fake 'leather' material that does not use animal skin, thus cruelty free. My adult children are vegan so.... :)

What is easier to play, the ukulele or the kazoo?
