I made this a little while ago for a newbie swap, but just now posting.  I found the purple fabric first, and then couldn't stop until I found some Elvis vinyl.  I have this one completed and another half way done.  This was the first record purse I made, so it's not perfect, but I was pretty happy with it, and my swap partner seemed to like it.

Thanks for taking a look!




I don't have a very good pic of the handles, they are braided pleather.

I've never seen anything like this.  Where did you learn to do it?

There are several vendors on etsy.  I ran across them when I was looking for something to do with the cool vinyl I had picked up at yard sales.  There are some cool sites where people created books and scrapbook pages too.   I figured it out from the pic.  I think I did my lining different.  I used bias tape to clean up the edges.

This on is a little different than the one I made, but it's a good tutorial

I cut the album by scoring it with an xacto and breaking it at the score line on the edge of a counter.  Much easier than using a saw.

google image search "album purse" and you'll see a lot of takes on the idea.

Thanks for the comment.
