Yes I can!

I've been working on a custom order of CD sleeves for my sisters photography business.
Figuring out how to close the flap was one thing, but forcing myself to learn to use the button hole function on my new sewing machine was a whole other ballgame. But, I did! I've never made a button hole before but by golly, it was easy! So, you can too! If you already know how to do that, you could learn to knit, or play rugby, or yodel. The possibilities are endless! Pull out that manual (if you can find it) and cram some more useful stuff into your brain. Its difficult, I know! I work in medical insurance - my brain has been full for months now.

And as luck would have it, Carrie (said sister) will be flying in from Florida next week to personally pick up her fabulous new CD sleeves. As a bonus, she has business in town at the same time. I'm just happy to save on postage!

What a great combo that button is with the black and white pattern. Really cool! I love your, "you can do it!" button hole attitude. I've not done that yet....I will! xoxo

i also have not tried the button-hole, but it is on my 'to-do' list! i was also wondering if you happen to have a tutorial for the fabric CD cover? i have a photography friend as well that would LOVE these for her business!

Kristin - I don't have an official tutorial for these CD covers... but I think I may just go ahead and post them on my blog... because they're so easy! The hardest part was figuring out the dimensions, really.
