Fabric CD Case Tutorial

To return the favor of the gifted camera, I wanted to make my sister Jill a little something special.
I had bookmarked this idea for a CD wallet on Homemade by Jill just before Valentines Day and thought it would be perfect. Check out her blog- she has a lot of awesome tutorials and beautiful photos.

The project gave me the opportunity to check out Quilter's Heaven- a quilting shop just ten minutes from our apartment- yay!  I snagged a couple of prints that reminded me of the colors Jill has used in print materials for her photography business.  Lately she's been doing more head shots and family shoots (check them out on her blog, they're great!) and I wanted to give her something to use for a special client, or keep for herself!

Measurements for the cases were included on Homemade by Jill's blog, but I'm still a fairly novice sewer and it took me a while to wrap my head around the construction. I made a goofy little tutorial so I wouldn't have to think so hard if I ever did this again. Thought I'd share and if I put it online I won't lose it!


  1. Received in the mail yesterday!! These are fabulous - I plan to keep one for myself and give one to one of my favorite clients after our baby shoot next week. Thank you!!
