Teen's CD Player Holder

Image of Teen's CD Player Holder Designed by Julie A. Bolduc

My daughter recently bought a CD player for herself and she asked me if I could make her a holder for the CD player. So this is what I came up with. It is sturdy because it has old CD's inside to keep it's shape and the strap goes all the way around it.
