Is there no piece of board or anything in the bottom? It doesn't sag at all when things are inside?
This is brilliant. I'm definitely putting off all my other projects to make one of these!

since i'm making it, NO MATTER WHAT, i would put a piece of cardboard betweent the outside fabric and the linning. or maybe i could melt a piece of record. do you guys thing that they would bond??? also, i think that spray adhesive would work better??? what do you think?? anyway DUDE!!!!! this is toooo cool!!!! one of my sister's friend's uncle died and he gave us a shitload of records. plus we already had a ton on our ceiling. YESS!!! and my dad's a carpenter so plenty of power tools here! YES! i love you!!!! seriously!!! i'm estatic!!!! thanks a MILLION!!!!!!

Not sure about the spray adhesive.  I don't know if that would hold so well.  It is a little tricky to get the inside good enough to hot glue.  You want it to be just perfect.

I interfaced the outer fabric as well as the lining.  It makes it a little sturdy.
 
Instead of cardboard, maybe you could use a piece of plastic canvas, cheap and will hold up to moisture.

Records on the ceiling, I've got to see that one.  Ain't it the bomb to get free records.  Then you don't worry about breaking them.  I found it easier to cut the records when you heat up your knife.  I didn't even drill the holes for the rings last time.  I just heated up my knife and twisted it around.  Perfect hole.

Post a picture guys.  I want to see some more of bowlordies record purses.

damn!!! that was waaay harder than i thought, haha. my dad's stanley was waaay dull. it took me 5 records to get it done, THE BREAK SO FREAKIN' EASILY!!! one of the handles chipped and i think i'm going to make another one. knowing that it's chipped KILLS me!!! i'm suuuuuper perfectionist. so i guess i'll skip the spray. i've almost got it done, it's just the rings that are holding me back cuz i dont' have n e rite now. i'll go 2 walmart later. thanks for the advice momwith3kids!!!
and again, awesome purse!!! i'm so selfish, i would've never given a tutorial, haaha, let alone give it away!!! THANKS A MILLION!!!

Instead of key rings, I made one for a swap and used binder rings.  You can buy them in the school supplies section, around the paper clips, etc.  Then you don't have to fuss with trying to get it on.

I have also seen purses made this way.  Except they don't have record for the handles.  They have put leather, or whatever, for straps.  They just attached them under the lining.

Good luck.  Post some pics.

Last night I was fighting insomnia and trying to find something to do, which eventually led me here. And as soon as I saw this, I decided I wanted to make one too! So I started at like 10 o'clock this morning, and worked on it off and on during the day, and I just got finished. I had some troubles when I was cutting the records, but I found it was easier to heat them up in the oven (preheat to 300 degrees, slap it on a cookie tray and let it sit in there for like 2 minutes) to soften them up and make them easier to cut. So here's my homage to bowlordie's awesome idea and tutorial (excuse the crap on the mirror):




Bowlordie, you're a genius! Grin
