A Finishing Touch

I was commissioned by my mother to make twelve dvd cases this week... One for her and one for each of her eleven siblings.Photobucket These provide a delightful finishing touch to a burned cd or dvd... Photobucket 
I am only halfway done...six down and six to go. Yes, above only five of the completed six are visible (in case you were concerned with my counting abilities)... Photobucket 
My scrap fabric is proving to be quite handy indeed. And I'm thankful for the extra bit of sewing practice. Photobucket 
I confess I had to make a few trial cases before I got the measurements just right. Photobucket 
Once I had it figured out, I fashioned a pattern out of a thick piece of paper. If I follow the pattern exactly, I end up with uniform dimensions for each case (a happy fact for any perfectionist...).
If you'd like to try making some of your own just let me know and I'll send you the measurements I'm using. Photobucket 
I love how this one turned out... Photobucket The selvage edge is showing a bit and I love the character it adds. This post feels so wonderfully crafty. My goal is to finish the remaining six cases today. I'm getting faster...

  4. I absolutely love these! What a great idea for handing out photos on cd to grandparents and family! I would love to know the dimensions you used. I plan on getting creative, artsy, and crafty in the months to come while my hubby is gone!

    Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. They mean so much to me.
