Somehow, I managed to acquire about 200 old records that were warped in a fire, but still in good condition for crafting. So, I started using them up making all sorts of crafts: records purses, bowls, bracelets, necklaces, etc.
But, then I had all of the covers left over. I saw an idea for making a tote bag with the covers. I tried a few versions, but I wasn't really into it.
So, I came up with another idea. I used my 2 hole punch to make a songbook/notebook/sketch book out of the records. On the right of the paper, because of the big space that is left over, I stitched down a strip of elastic to hold pens/charcoals, etc.
I did another version where I punched through the side multiple time and laced it up with ribbon.
Just thought I would share this little idea. I know it isn't really my normal sewing patterns and tutorials, but like any true crafter, I cannot be pinned down to just one medium.
