    I like the idea of having several–and being able to wash them! Might make the grandkids some–theirs get pretty nasty at school. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Teresa says:

    Becky T, thanks so much! I work hard to make sure that people can understand. I feel that the photos help a lot. I cannot tell you how many times I have sat at the sewing machine confused trying to figure out a pattern!

    Thank you! This is probably the BEST tutorial of how to make a bag I’ve ever found on the web. The step-by-step directions of what you want…and what you DON’T want, are awesome. And the images are so clear about how to make it look. Love it!
