CD Sewing Case


Here's another sewing case ready for the sew along over at Liz's blog you can find the tutorial for this one and the others there if you want to make one for yourself.

This one was a little more difficult because the pictures on the tutorial weren't very clear. It was the hinge that was the problem but I managed to work it out on my own eventually.

I think this is my favourite of the three I've sewn because you could use it for so many things. It's made from two old cd's so a good recycling project too.

A sewing case.

Or a jewelery case or for hair accessories.

Next project will possibly be some fabric baskets.

  1. WOW you did an amazing job on that pouch (no surprise there!) - I checked out the tutorial and you're right - the photographs aren't very good - I definitely need a lot more guidance doing a new construction technique like that, lol!

  2. I just saw this tutorial yesterday and thought it was a clever idea using the CD's. You did a wonderful job. You sure have been busy making things lately.

  3. You should do your own tutorial!! what a beautiful case...and your work is fantastic!!! Thank you for your friendship,

  4. Oh I love this one Maria....what a nifty little case.....LOVE your fabric choices as usual.......and as usual, your workmanship looks so NEAT!

  5. Hi Maria, I'm stopping by from Sew Many Ways FaFF to see your wonderful sewing case. I love that you recycled CD's for this project! What a great idea! I'm your newest follower and I hope you will come over for a visit and follow me! Suzy

    1. Hi Heike.
      I wanted to reply to you by email but you are on no reply so will reply to your comment here.
      First of all thanks for getting in touch with me. I am aware of the situation. Liz wrote to me and explained everything. She has also been in contact with Jutta in the past and they have resolved the matter. Jutta herself also got in touch with me yesterday after reading my post where I said the tutorial wasn't very clear and she very kindly sent me her tutorial which I must say is beautifully clear. Lovely photos and although I can't understand German now I've made it once won't have any problem in the future. I also checked her blog and she has made some beautiful cases some of which are very novel ideas. I have also asked her to consider putting her tutorial on her blog. Loads of people love this project and it's only right that she should get credit for the beautiful work she did. If she does decide to add the tutorial I've asked her to let me know so I can link back to her.

      Thanks again
