has anybody had difficulty with this? I had a hard time cutting my records..several cracked..I finally heated mine up in the oven and cut it..but the handles are giving me the most difficulty I cant seem to get them to look good..otherwise my record purse is coming along fine:)

I promised I'd take pictures... many months ago.
But for Christmas I got my very own digital camera!  Cheesy
So without further ado...

The outside (without flash)

The outside (with flash)

The inside (a look at the elastic holders that keep my little things from falling out)

The inside (and the pocket)

And one label I painted over and such

And the other!

I hope the wait was worth it. I think it's the best purse in the entiiiiiire world!

Clicking "this rocks!" Cheesy

After I got over the fact that the records used for this bag were cut up (I'm a big LP fan), I realized that it was completely amazing.  You did a great job on it!
The next time I'm at a thrift store, I won't pass up a damaged record since I now know what they're capable of.

Kitsch, please! (a knitting blog) Updated!

You say 'kitschy' like it's a bad thing.

i made this purse a few months ago but gave it away for christmas and now i need to make a new one.....how did you get the fabric to look so neat? mine looked to messy so i'm trying to think of a different way to attatch i this time. I hot glued most of it because i'm really not a sewer....also to make the bottom stronger i sewed the fabric around some cardboard to make the bottom sturdier

aw! thanks guys!!!

it seems as though there is a little discouragement, and it will definitely happen! working with vinyl was probably the hardest thing i've done, and of course i just HAD TO DO IT! heh. i was able to find records for 10 cents at our st. vincent's so there was plenty of room for trial and error while scoring. i guess just try to remain patient, and and check the couch cushions for change Smiley

also for the lining,
i haven't tried anything other than sewing, but if you meant the attachment of the fabric to the record, i also used silicone (which was kinda smelly, and somewhat managable) but i spread it on the record first with a paint brush. i guess it helped since there were no strings of hot glue sticking out and all over your fabric.

hope it helped! Smiley
