    I made many of these several years ago… loved them and gave them for gifts for Christmas to friends. However, I agree about the language… I took out the pattern to make some more, and had difficulty remembering how I understood it back then! The sewing part is easy! They are really cute…

  2. I love these projects. They are so cute. But the instuctions can get confusing at times. O_o I got lost at the first instruction. But these really are great. And I will try to make one soon. 🙂 Thanks!

  3. Very sheek. I travel a lot, so this will help with those little things! Thanks a lot!

  4. Is the maker of this tutorial a foreign speaking person? If so, then I can understand words spelled incorrectly, incorrect use of some words and general lack of understanding of the directions. They do not make sense.
