    Thanks!
    Lisa, I have really enjoyed reading the topic and all the comments made! Quilters, I thank all of you! I have two tutorials I am working on from another post I made which I have not finished yet:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-151929-1.htm

    I will work on a tutorial for this too. I don't want to disclose what I use for the form for the sewing kit until I post a tutorial. I would like it to be a surprise! But it is a disposable that most of you might have in your homes already. I am trying to work on a pattern. I can tell you the story about the making of this one!

    An 11 year old boy came around when my grass got high, knocked on my door and asked to be hired to cut the lawn. When he came in the house he saw my sewing/craft room, and saw promise in it! Most people see an eyesore! LOL LOL And he pestered me to invite him to make crafts. Well he brought by a friend, Abby, also 11. They decided to decorate my house for Halloween since I really can't do it. They took off for 1/2 an hour to the local store and brought back all kinds of Halloween stuff, hung it everywhere, filled a plastic cauldron they bought with candy, ate half of it, and then went into a sugar frenzy! I could not keep up with them! I forgot what 11 year olds are capable of! They could be my grandchildren's age if I had any. I nearly collapsed! LOL LOL Anyway, sugar seems to play with the sensibility and fine motor dexterity of 11 year olds! I did the best I could on the project considering I had two wild adolescents to keep track of at the same time. And guess what, they thought I was going to let them touch the glue gun and my rotary cutter! I saw firsthand why there is controversy over letting some children use such things! I held the rotary cutter in my hand and told him it was extremely sharp, a round razor blade, he raised his finger to touch it and said, "Let me see!" as his finger neared the blade! OMG! What a day it was! We eventually finished the project, but I had to take a long nap when we were done! LOL
    Loved your story! Looking forward to a future tute!
