I actually made it ages ago from this tutorial as a birthday present for my friend Stevie Paul but never posted it in its own thread.  Doing it now cause I wanna do a CD wallet swap and need to get people interested.  Wink

Back then I didn't have a digital camera so the pics are just scans.   Lips sealed

oh well.



Cover and Spine.  You can see this was my first attempt at that type of binding.  The covers are made out of old punky looking records from the thrift store that were all scratched up.





One of the sleeves.  It was a REALLY beat up record cover I found at the thrift store but it looked awesome so it was bought.





What it looked like with CDs in.  Sewing through the layers was a PAIN but the screw-ups actually added to it a lot.  Stevie is all sorts of into punk rock music and that was the "theme" of the gift.

the spine?  its layed flat and open so that the front is on the right and the back on the left.  the "open" space shows the sleeves all folded up.  this is one of those things that makes me really wish i had caught on to that whole digital camera thing earlier.

I'm curiuos how the binding part works. Because I'd like to make my siister one of these for her birthday. But I can't seem to figure out the binding part. Do you just wrap the tthread around the "button hole?" or is there a specific way to do it?
I'm heading to the thrift store tommarrow to get a old record cover for the progect but her party is sunday. lol nothing like waiting till the last minute.

I used this tutorial.  Just remember to line up the holes in the envelope folds as exactly as possible.  Oh, its also all about the tension.  I totally fudged up that part.   Undecided
