Heres another CD case thats a bit different in functionality and holds a whopping 8 CDs.  I used an old pair of jeans (actually same pair that I used on the last one), some extra fabric from a purse I made, a couple red buttons & some elastic to hold it closed.  I also added my JJ Janets Junk tag to the back.  I reinforced the whole thing to make it stiff using a couple cardboard cut outs from our soda 12 packs boxes.  It was the coolest thing to use and I just cut it to size and sewed it in.  Im lovin this one and am hoping to make a few more the next few days.  What do you all think?  Comments are welcomed! Smiley  Thanks.

I'm making some things for our Earth Day event at work in a couple weeks and this is one of the things I'm going to make a handful of for it.  It's a CD case made of old worn out jeans (only had to use one leg) and some old fabric scraps from a purse I made a while ago.  It has a velcro closure too.  The other ones I make will hold more than 4 CD's though.  I will also need to make the pockets on each page bigger so the CD's won't fall out so easily.  Enjoy!

These all look so professional!  You took your time on them and I can tell!  Where did you get the black/white fabric in the 1st pic?  That is my fave for sure!!!

I think your bag is very adorable and I'm sure that little girl adores it.  The fabrics are so springy and remind me of warm weather...yes, spring is finally almost here!  I like how you used the two different fabrics on the straps.  Do you know where you got the fabric?  I just love the orange flowery one.  Good job!

I've been wanting to try making a placemat purse, just haven't gotten around to it yet.  Your post has peaked my interest and I may do one next.  Smiley  Nice work and very creative use of all those different patterns and colors.  I just love your embellishments!

Thank you for the compliments.  That is what is called a satin stitch or zig zag stitch.  It's not difficult to do at all, just takes some time and you need patience.  Smiley  I created the applique first and then stitched it onto the bag.  I know I've had others ask me how I do them so I'll do a tutorial next time around.  You can also see a basic tutorial at http://myhappycrazylife.com/how-to-applique/, although I did not use her techniques.  It is very similar though starting at step #11.  Once you start, you will become addicted.  I've been sketching out pictures of things I like on my google searches and then creating from there.  That's how I did my Tennessee bag posted here.  I'll post a tute soon!

Oh and originally, I saw someone else on Craftster do a simple tutorial and that's how I got started...but I can't seem to find their post.  It was several years ago so it must be lost somewhere.  Smiley  One will be coming soon...

It was teacher appreciation week and I made this clutch for my sons 1st grade teacher.  I asked her what her favorite colors were and she said green & purple.  So I used a beautiful green/brown fabric for the outside and green for the inside.  The bird applique on the outside was handmade by me and is the same green fabric as the lining and the eye is a purple jewel that I glued on.  And a clutch wouldn't be complete without a wristband.  Here it is without further adeu...my first ever clutch! Smiley

Great job with your creation and use of zippers & pockets in a wallet.  And the fabric both inside & out is awesome!  Smiley
