    Do you have a link to a picture? Or is this just a question in general?

    Are you talking about the bags that have the window in them so that you can see what is in the bag?

    You can get them from walmart or florists sometimes. Someone found some on the Internet. I did some but I put rice in them. It worked pretty good. It can be a little dusty compaired to the little beady things. They can also be more expensive. I imagine that you can use small beans or something as well. It was fun to customize them to the people I gave them to. I found a bunch of small fireman stuff for my bil as that is what he is.

    Cut out your pieces. What ever size you would like. You can make them differnt sizes. Get some of the table cloth plastic ( I got mine from walmart. ) if I am thinking right I used 6 gage. Cut a hole just smaller than you want your window. And the plastic a bit bigger. Snip the corners of the fabric so that you can fold it in a bit. Lengthen your stitches as it perforated the plastic. You can use a big zig zag if desired. Place the plastic behind and sew around the whole. Rift sides together. Sew leaving a whole to turn. Turn and stuff with supplies. I kept a list of items for them to find. Or you can just leave them search. Sew up the hole. I also sewed all around the outside reinforcing the seam. I didn't want to chance anything escaping. Attach the list. If you need more Han that let me know.

    I find that dollar stores have lots of little bits and pieces sometimes. I found some alphabet beads to go in them and all sorts of other goodies. Just thinking about it if I was doing a girlie one I would add some sparklies as well and make it glitter inside.
