You might well have seen one of my cameras with an attached
wrist strap, as I posted the URL to such a photo a few weeks
ago when the topic up straps came up.  That photo has been
removed from my web space, but I'll post another later today.

I'd like to know how your idea works out in actual use.  The
wrist straps I've used all have a way to allow the camera and
strap to rotate without twisting the strap itself.  The strap
is attached to a swivel which is then attached to the camera. 
I suspect that your idea, while cost effective, may not be the
best option.
