Great tutorial. I like the contrasting fabric for the flaps. I will be adding this to my to do list. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, you are very ambitious. You did a great job. Everything looks wonderful and I will definitely try to make it! Thanks so much for making a tutorial. School started again so my crafting time has gone way down. Oh and the kiddies LOVED the concentration cards. I had to set up a sharing system because they all wanted them at once!

Just one question I forgot to ask....what do you suggest if I dont have the gromet stuff? I thought maybe I could I make button holes instead and pass the cord through that.


Now I finally have a REALLY GOOD EXCUSE to purchase a gromet maker. Thanks!


great tutorial!!! passing this link to my D-I-L ...she will love...


Oh what a great tutorial! Such pretty fabrics too! Another thing to add to my craft to do list....


I LURV the mama back back! Thanks for sharing - I look forward to giving it a go! ;)

Wowee! What a great tutorial. The photos are even good! But now I've got another thing to add to my to do list...


Wow. Another great tutorial to try. I love the look of the grommets and your fabric is soooo nice.


Yaay! Can't wait to try it - I appreciate the hard work that went into this!


Wow- that is amazing. i'll have to try it. I love your fabric choices.


Thank-you!What a great tutorial I will put it on my 'to do' list!


Overachiever. My GOD how long does she NAP?!


(If I didn't think you knew me well enough I'd say, quite simply, "Awesome tutorials! Thanks, Amy!")


OK, I just made my first bag and it went great! I have to tell you, when I started to review all of the steps...well, I didn't think it was going to end well for me. BUT - I just followed the instructions closely and am happy happy happy with my new bag. The tutorial was excellent - I can't remember the last time I was less frustrated with a pattern. ;0) Thanks again!


Is that Amy Butler fabric? it's gorgeous! I may have to try this! Not sure about those gromets though, they look scary, and I don't need any more tools in my room!


This is a fantastic tutorial. Very clear and easy to follow, and the pattern is very clever. I'm going to make one this weekend!


Wow - I LOVE it! Can't wait to try it out - I need one of those. Thanks so much!


I'm adding this one to the list of "must-do's". Thanks for the detailed instructions!


Love it... A great tutorial to try. Thanx
You are a good instructor


Awesome! I'm a novice machine sewer, and this still came out beautiful! I know what I'm making my sister and niece for Christmas this year!

Hope u dont mind :)


I just made two of these as Christmas gifts for boys. WOW, what an amazing tutorial. Everything was clearly explained with very helpful pictures!! Thank you so much for the time and effort you put into this!!


I really want to buy a solid sewing machine as I am a beginner, but would like to be able to use it after I become more skilled. Do you have a recommendation for a beginner? Which Brand and model do you use? I really love how you have photos as well as instructions for visual learners like me. Thank you.
