First of all, I appologise for the dodgy phone pic's.

I think it's fairly self-explanatory. i used red vinyl/pleather on the outside, and a cherry-print cotton for the lining, and some plain black fabric from an old pair of pants for the outside's that're covered by the records. i used spray-adhesive to stick the records to the bag, and then stitched it on via the usual melted-holes method, with upholstery thread.

the handles are chain, woven with velvet ribbon.

I really like it! I'm a sucker for record bags and made quite a few of my own which I've been selling. I love the way you've made the handles!

Thanks Guys!

yeah i like the handles too, i've seen them on alot of bags, and didn't really like them... but when i saw the other record bags on here, i suddenly just thought they'd be perfect for it :-)
