Welcome to the Quilting Board!
While I don't have little ones with toys anymore I can take something away from this. I love the spool closing idea and will use it next time I make a tote/purse...
Thanks again for sharing this idea! I have finished mine in time for my next visit to my GS and posted the pictures here: A play mat for my little grandson
We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
