Funky Fresh CD Holder

By:

Use scrap fabrics to make a unique and eclectic fabric cd holder from Jennifer Neill. These are one-of-a-kind gifts that will be great for Mother's Day crafts and friends' birthdays. Make a funky cd holder for all your music-loving friends!

Funky CD Player

Materials:

  • Fabric Scraps (cut into 8x5 inch strips)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Thin Cardboard or Sturdy Interfacing (cut into two 12x6 inch rectangles)
  • Two additional pieces of fabric (cut into 8x14 inch rectangles)
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun

Instructions:

  1. Roll one long edge under and press to create a hem and avoid fraying.

  2. Use a piece of fabric as a base (about 8x14 inches), and begin to layer your strips of fabric onto it. Begin at the top and layer each piece about 1/2 inch lower than the one before it.
     
  3. Pin and run a stitch along the edge. (This seam is just to hold your pieces together). Each layer remains open at the top and provides a little pocket for a CD. It will look like this:

  4. Flip your sewn strips over and center your cardboard or interfacing. Wrap your fabric around the cardboard.

  5. All these layers were thin enough to sew through, but too thick to pin...soooo I pulled out the duct tape to hold it in place! Here is the piece we will use for the back, covered with a single layer of coordinating fabric.

  6. And here is the piece we layered and sewed, also taped to the cardboard.

  7. Sew the fabrics onto each piece of cardboard and remove the tape. (Sew slooowly so you don't break your needle). Clean up the edges with your scissors.

  8. Now, you should have two fabric covered cardboard rectangles. One should have a single fabric covering it and the other should have your layered fabrics covering it. Hot glue the front and back together, just sandwich all the ugly parts inside!

  9. Flip her over and fill her up with all your funky tunes (because we only listen to cool music in my new ride!)

Crafter's Note: This could be a cute gift idea wrapped with a new CD.
