I have been inspired by Chillychick's post and made my own version (even though she didn't post a tutorial, it was easy to make.)

I used this dark red very ugly looking denim fabric I had lying around and Boney M and Donna Summer 45's. It is all sewn by hand no machines are involved!

how it looks:



thanks for looking Smiley feedbacks are welcomed! Wink


first gather all your bits together :

take your fabric and measure it around one record this will give you the length of the gusset part, keep it little bit longer as you will need to sew it together. once you measure the length, it is up to you the width of it, the more wide the more it takes the bag..

take your zipper and measure it. then make a hole in the middle of the gusset part to install the zipper:

install the zipper in:

take your record and put it on your fabric and draw around it, make two. then take your strap part and put it  on right side:

start to sew in the gusset part into circle part then sew the other circle side to the gusset:

sew the gusset part together at the bottom:

your bag should be look like this:

turn it and glue down your records to the sides and voila you have a super cool record clutch:

sorry i didn't have time to use actual fabric and i use some kind of paper

Yay glad to see someone actually liked my idea. As I said it's super easy to make and Tinybits purse looks much better than mine so maybe she could whip up a tut? If not I can definately attempt to put one together. Awesome clutch  Cheesy

Wow- that is totally rockin.  I have never seen a bag like that before.  I know you said it looked easy to figure out, but how did you get the records sewn in?

I did a purse very similar using 45's only with a shoulder strap.  What I did was use a candle to head a wire and put
holes in the record all the way around and sew it to the vinyl using double crochet cotton.  You can also use
a sodering iron to make the holes probably faster.

You can check out my purse at www.PictureTrail.com/trenwen  under the Radical & Retro album.
