peek-a-boo toy sack

for this adorable little person's birthday....

i used this great tutorial to make this really fun and easy peek-a-boo toy bag!
i think this might have been one of the first times i've ever sewn something using a pattern. i always make the assumption that instead of reading instruction manuals, recipes, patterns etc. it's easier to just "wing it" (even though obviously my track record might argue otherwise. ha!).  but lo and behold, there are very talented people out there who really know what they are doing and also know how to give easy to follow instructions which made this little project super easy and lots of fun. You should make one too!

you did a fantastic job ~ I love the fun colors and being able to see the toys inside. Elias must just love to fill it up and tote it around! (what great motivation for clean-up time!!) :)

This was such a cute gift. I'm still trying to think of a way to somehow prominently display the bag in Elias' room! :) Thank you many times, Sister!
