Lots of crafty transplants here! I'm originally from Michigan but have been in MN for almost three years. I live down in Mankato which is about an hour and a half from the cities but I like to go up there a lot. (there is so much more to do!)

I've been trying a lot of different crafting lately. I just started really getting into sewing and making actual garments but I enjoy DIY projects and learning new things.

I agree it's very hard to make friends here if you're an out-of-towner. It seems that with the whole "Minnesota Nice" thing it would be easier but that hasn't been my experience.

30  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Rockin' record display on: August 29, 2010 04:13:27 PM
My boyfriend is a bit of a musicphile so I bought him a record player for his birthday since his philosophy is that vinyl always sounds better and more authentic. His dad then gave us all of his old records which are just sitting in a pile beneath the player. Some of the album covers had great art so I tried to figure out a way to display them but also keep them protected and usable. I had looked online for something I could purchase and didn't find anything so I thought for a while and and voila! This is my solution!

(excuse the crappy flash flare)


I used a lightweight plastic that I found at JoAnne's similar to a shower curtain and then created pockets for the records. The pocket openings are facing the wall so it looks streamlined and like the records are trapped in the plastic but the records can still be easily removed.



I folded the top so that it could handle the weight and added grommets for hanging. As you can see though the plastic is sagging a little bit since the stitch was straight.

Here is a close-up of the zigzag stitch I used



And another angle.


I'm happy with the way it turned out and my boyfriend loves it too. It has a few flaws here and there but it gives it personality.
