I loved all the ones youd done before (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=311625.0 , http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=367417.msg4317705#msg4317705, http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=357873.0 and some others), and I started to think about how to make one for me near 2 years ago. Firstly, I found a container, (a RUBISH CONTAINER!!!) full to bursting with records in Netherlands. I couldnt help wondering why people had thrown them away!!! (Are they mad?!?!?!) I picked 10 or 12 (and some of them worked, so I listened and gave them as gifts to some friends.), but I kept half of them for trying how to make the bag, thinking that I would break some of them when trying to make the first one. So...on March, I decided to start it seriously, but I havent finished it until today!!!

Its been a reeeallyyy slowww proccess, mixing all your tips and experiences, selecting carefully the fabrics, the tools, asking my friends what they thought about this and that, asking my father for some experienced help...
And thats completely new for me, as a challenge, since I am so so so impatient that I pretend to finish everything within a cuple of hours and all by myself!

I think you neednt again the tutorial explained so I will put all pics in order and you can ask whatever Smiley.
Maybe its highlights are that I used tablecloth inside to make the bag waterproof, and I joined the records to it with studs though the holes. I also added a hard cupboard to make the base more resistant. Apart from that.... just loads and loads of glue!!

Thank you for seeing!!!

(Im kind of proud of it Smiley)
