Easy DIY Quilted CD Case

I have a gazillion CDs from tests. My doctors kept putting them in an envelope and it eventually looked unsightly. Decided to make a case for it to keep it tidy.

This project just took me a day to make. I love how you can just customize things for your own use. Here's how I made it -

Size: 6" x 2" x 6"


white fabric with design

black fabric

backing fabric (I used red fabric with hearts)

black fabric for binding

gold embroidery thread 

quilting thread

How to Make Bias Binding Tape

There are many different ways to bind your quilt. I started with making them manually. This process did the job, but it takes so long to make. Another way is to use a special foot for your sewing machine. This is something I want to learn eventually. Others just cut the fabric and sew directly on the quilt. 

I discovered an inexpensive bias tape maker online a few years ago. I got a set and researched how to use it. I love that I can easily make bias tapes for my projects. Buying ready made from the store can be expensive and there's not that many options. Learning how to make my own binding changed the way I do my projects. 

I made a tutorial video on how to use the bias tape maker - 

Hope this helps you make your project easier to make!
