I bought a bunch
of vinyl records from a thrift store to make record bowls for christmas presents.
I had a few left over and I decided I wanted to make a purse because i've seen them around the site and i've always wanted to make one. as a christmas present for my
best friend of course.
I tried to take pictures of the process. I forgot to get one of it in the oven though.
I was going to try the mod record purse tutorial i've seen but I didn't have a way of cutting the records, so I decided i'd just figure out something as I went along . It took a few tries of putting it back in the oven and reshaping it to get it to the shape i wanted.
after i got it the shape i wanted and had just started sewing on one of the side pieces.
made the holes for sewing by heating a needle , very time consuming, but easy.
my kitties admiring the purse. and you can sortof see how i sewed a button to cover the hole in the bottom
sewed on the straps and i'm done! yes those are chess pieces, put a hole in the top
of them by again heating a needle.
and being that my friend loves pandas because her name is amamda i made her
a little panda to match the purse. [clay, acrylic paint, and sealer.. and buttons]
Hope you like it
now i'm going to make one for myself.
