Fabric booklet using Recycled CDs

Do you ever have those days when you put the car keys in the fridge and fill the teapot up with milk?  I still can not find my purse.  I know I brought it home with me this morning.  Better check the freezer!  Anyway…

I tried to start a few project yesterday afternoon.  Nothing seemed to gel so in the end I made a fabric booklet using old CDs  Its not quite what I pictured in my mind but it kept me occupied for a few hours.

Here are the pages

The pages are made up of fabric layers sewn together and then the bottom layer is adhered to a CD.

I made a few mistakes.  I had intended to use book binding rings but I drilled the holes too small!  Not keen on ribbon binding.  The fabric is adhered to the CDs with book binding glue.  Although it is stuck down I am not sure how permanent it is.  Maybe it would have been better to sand the CDs a little to take the shine off them.

 

Best Wishes Florence.

    • Hi Marie. Lovely to hear from you. I keep loosing things and forgetting words. Everything is a “thingy”. Signs of getting older! It did only take a few hours. It was still a bit soggy when I took the photos!
